I am in therapy and happy with my therapist but I have a terrible time with eye contact in session. I understand the vulnerability and so on that goes along with such a direct connection. I know this is also a protective mechanism so she won't get too close. I can't see her so she can't see me?

We have been doing parts work and one wounded part has been creating a barrier for me in therapy. I asked it today what it needs to feel safe and trust the therapist because she is good and trusting…
