My last two questions for the forum would be: Is there a good time to change your therapist, and if so when? I had been going to the same therapist on and off for most of the last decade or so. She then started to tell me that the root cause of my pain was because I hated myself, which I don't agee with. I then went to another therapist, who seemed to be helping a lot more, but she then went off on summer leave for the whole of July and August, just as I started to need an appointment with her. I am now seriously considering another therapist to go to, just for 3-4 sessions as I believe I am getting so close to what I am repressing. When should I stop journalling? I have been journalling for most days of the last two and a half years. I have had a few weeks in there of no journalling (especially just after my dad died about 20 months ago), but my back pains have been increasing in intensity over the last 2-3 weeks since I've returned to it. As I commented above, I believe this means I am nearly at the point of what I am repressing. How much longer do I give it, before stopping for a prolonged period of time, or should you ever stop journalling?
