Am I my therapists retirement hobby?

I’m worried I might be my therapists retirement hobby. She had a finance job up until a few years ago, and now works from a home office. She’s older, and doesn’t back to back clients, but I don’t know how many she sees a week. Always seems to be able to move my slots quite easily so I guess not a full book.

She’s a good therapist, sometimes I feel she’s out of her depth but Everyone I’ve come across is like that with my problems. Am I just some easy money for her to fund nice extras? I don’t know. I don’t know if it bothers me or no sometimes it does sometimes it doesn’t. I don’t want to be somebody’s hobby that they just play at.
Unless she is doing therapy for free, you are using her for her knowledge to get better. She isn't using you? What's important is are you getting what you need and want. That's it. She is working for you.

I had a co-worker who did a similar move in her 40s. She went from a high salary finance job in the city to a part time receptionist job. I was quite envious of her as she was financially secure enough to take a huge hit to her income. These kinds of people are actually quite smart and know that it’s much better to get out of those high pressure jobs early if they can afford to.

Bottom line right there. It is easy for the lines to blur, with teachers and therapists especially. But, always remember and never forget, the transaction is happening because you are paying for it. Not getting what you want for the money? Time to hire a different (insert profession here).
