RED FLAG! Your T should know better than anyone that you have to love yourself FULLY before you learn to love others [effectively]. I think you would benefit from a new T, whose merits are more in order? I don't think it is appropriate to insist that a client need a relationship to repair their self esteem. Good luck!
