Usually I would spend some time with former T talking about how I was going to miss her and going over my coping skills while she was away. I'd give her her going away card that I made and usually I would have her wait to open it until she was gone that way I felt like I was carried with her. If I wanted something special like a voicemail from her I would discuss it then. Then we would just talk about how things had been going lately and how much progress I had made. It helped me feel more hopeful about things. Good luck. HUGS Kit

Okay. Back to this thread. T told me today to plan out what I want to talk about for our last session. I'm still stumped. I know I want encouragement and reassurance. I don't want to cry (though I might), and I don't want to deal with my current issues in life. Not going to play games or throw a party (she even said no the the later when I brought up we're going to miss our anniversary). Going over coping skills is good. She said she'd cut the session short if I wanted to, but I told her that would make me feel like I missed my time with her.

When my T will be gone the session before he leaves we identify external supports and then spend the session building up my internal supports. Last time it meant looking at my strengths, looking at what my most supportive mentor would say my strengths were and what God would say my strengths were... that is after he got really squirrelly wondering if I would be offended or upset by the word God. It seemed to work.
