A perceptive therapist

I feel so glad that we have a very perceptive therapist. Especially as we are multiple. She notices everything. Whether that is because she is trauma trained, knows a lot about dissociation, or just knows what to look for, she notices everything.

Two things happened today in therapy and I wanted to write about them.

The first thing was this. we were sitting talking. Liz was out. We had thought of something to say but hadnt yet said it. We opened our mouth a little, ready to tell her our thought but then got distracted, next thing you know Eileen says to us, what were you going to say to me?

We were like how did you know we wanted to say something!

Then a few minutes later Willow was out. They were chatting and Eileen asked us about the documentary we’d taken part in at the basement club recently. Willow wasnt part of that, she doesnt know much about it. So Liz popped out to help her out and talk to eileen about it, but we hadnt told eileen we’d switched. After about 5 minutes of talking with Liz eileen says, whose this? Because it isnt willow!

Talk about perceptive! She is so tuned in!

All we could do was laugh. Of course we did tell her too who it was.

It did feel good though that she knows. She knows without it being obvious. Probably because she’s been our therapist now for five years. She notices the little things about us.

She said she could tell we’d switched into another part because of the passion with which liz spoke about being a part of that documentary.

So amazing.

  1. I think it’s all of those things you mentioned that make Eileen perceptive. Also, sighted folks can read a lot with body language. when she saw you open your mouth, she probably knew you were going to say something, even if she didn’t know what you were going to say. I bet when some of you come out, your facial expression changes. Your voice changes when it’s a young part like a kid. I can tell that on the video blog.
