When Finishing Your Therapy in Portland Oregon
At some point it is time to end the process of coaching or therapy. It may be something you bring up or your coach or therapist brings up.
Endings can be hard. My own experience and those I see in sessions is that saying goodbye is something that is not taught. So it is understandable when people avoid them. I have had people just disappear and I have no idea what happened. I have also had sweet endings where we have spent several sessions talking about the end.
Endings can be hard, it is closing a chapter or even a book. I would encourage you to face this, as it can be quite healing to have a conscious, intentional parting. Some things to explore with ending:
- Ask yourself how you have handled endings in the past.
- What have you learned, what will you take away.
- Is there some sort of ritual or something that you want to take with you from this experience.
- Do you want to hear the coach or therapist’s view of the process
- Review the time together.
- And give feedback to the coach or therapist (both what you would consider positive and negative) as it is a process for the coach or therapist as well.
Saying goodbye doesn’t have to be hard. Think through the process with these tips and contact me today.
