Abstract

This article gives a personal perspective on working as an academic at a distance from the institution. It describes a period in therapy and some of the painful self-examination that this involved. The writer wonders whether the therapist was right in insisting that what went on in therapy sessions paralleled what went on in the rest of her life. She would start to deny that the therapist had that kind of importance in her life: then she would wonder whether implying that someone wasn't that important was what she did as a way of protecting herself.
