Our expert says:
The over-all idea of some separate counselling sessions and then some joint sessions, can be useful. But issues relating to your relationship and the advantages and disadvantages of getting back together, need to be part of the agenda for each of you in your individual sessions. It is not wise for a counsellor in a situationlike this to over-emphasize individual independence and growth without recognizing that there is an on-going, pre-existing relationship, which should not lightly be abandoned.
When you say he wants you to get back together " and just pretend nothing happened" - are those his actual words ? Or are they what you and/or your therapist assume he wants ?
