Losing a Therapist


Recommended Posts

On Feb 26th 2019 I lost my therapist, whom I had been seeing since I was 13, I am almost 33 now. It has absolutely devastated me and turned my world upside down. I really looked at him more like a father and it has always felt like I am not really allowed to grieve due to his actual title.

I'm very, very sorry for your loss and I fully understand the importance a therapist can have in one's life. You built a relationship with this person over 20 years, sharing your most private thoughts and feelings and no doubt being supported and cared for. Losing a person like this whom you depended upon is very much like losing a parent, I agree.  I hope you were able to share your grief in some way (coming here is one good way to share of course). And if you feel "not allowed" to grieve by other people or society in general, then give yourself permission, please. Your grief is just as real and important as anyone else who has lost someone they love.

. I found out at work and ever since people have treated me differently because of who he was (his title) not because of what he meant to me. It has changed my personality and I don't want to shy away from people. I cry so much. I write letters. I am not allowed to talk about it seems. My heart has a hole. I real dad was never really around so KD was really like my dad. I nevee told him that and I regret it.
