The term "push" is not extreme when the client feels anxiety over an extended period of time, based on the continued suggestions of the therapist. If that is the case in this particular situation, it is excessive. If it's not, then the therapist is using this exercise to ween the client more into trusting others around them.

In my training as a therapist, I was instructed to go with the comfort level of the client. That is standard training during the first semester of grad school.

guys thanks for all the feed back as always. I did take her with me and he was surprised! I had made the commitment to bring her but he figured I would change my mind. and I think it went very well. not earth shattering but I was able to tell her that I don't think I understand intimacy. at least not in the way we were talking about it. I told them both I feel like I am on guard to some extent always and I try to watch all the time. I watch to be sure I'm doing the right thing, watch to be sure I didn't hurt feelings,didn't give myself away too feels that there is only so close I can allow even for her, but I think maybe now I want that to change,at least a little. hey its a start.
Either I will find a way, or I will make one.
