Goodbye Letter Therapist Completed Therapy Goodbye Letter

Dear Dr. {Recipient},

I am writing this letter in anticipation of our final, closing session. It is going to be so strange to not speak to you on a {frequency} basis, and there are a few final thoughts I'd like to get out on paper.

When I started therapy, I was sure that it was just going to be me whining to a stranger for an hour and it seemed depressingly similar to wallowing in the problems that I already had and couldn't get past. However, it only took a session or two to make me realize that you were doing more than just listening to me complain. Your insightful questions, exercises, recommendations and "homework" made me confront things that had been hiding in the background my whole life.

I suppose the way I feel now is akin to someone who has been cured of a disease rather than someone who has taken a pill to mask the pain. It's been hard, uncomfortable and downright painful at times to deal with all of the suppressed fear and uncertainty that I was holding onto, but I feel like I'm actually moving forward with my life for the first time in years.

Although I know that it's time to say goodbye and actually put my new tools into effect, I can't help but be sad to lose this wonderful relationship we've built over the last {amount of time}. You always gave me 100% of your attention, energy, and effort. I appreciate your skill, resources, and availability during this difficult period of my life. Even if it never extended beyond the same room at the same time every week, I really feel like I made a friend.

Thank you for everything you've done. I could not be happier with your work or the help you've provided.

Sincerely,

{Sender}
