How Do I (Politely) Quit My Therapist?

I've been seeing the same therapist, mostly once a week, for a little over two years. I feel like we're going around in circles. It may be me (it probably is), but he's been very patient and flexible with me on a variety of issues (including financial--he's not covered by my insurance.) What's the most respectful to say adieu and jump ship [more inside]

Can a reserved, somewhat shy person be a good therapist?

For much of my life I dealt with rather severe depression and anxiety, which I've recently overcome with nearly 3 years of therapy. I'm 24 years old, trying to find a meaningful career that's more than just a paycheck. At this point, all I want to do is be a therapist. I want to help others the way that I've been helped. However, another issue I've been working to overcome is crippling social anxiety. It's gotten much better; I hardly consider myself shy anymore. Still, though, I'm not sure if I have the warm, trust-inspiring personality a therapist should have. Could I be a successful therapist if I'm far quieter and more reserved than the norm? I do love people and want to help, but sometimes I might not come across that way. Can a shy person be a good therapist?

Therapist and psychologist recommendation Swansea

Can someone recommend a good therapist or psychologist in Swansea, Wales, preferably with a background in Asperger's Syndrome? It's important they should communicate by email or text (not just by phone), and it would be nice if they could cope with simultaneous untangling of anxiety/depression, sensory issues, bulimia, seemingly-insurmountable practical problems, a history of PTSD and neglect, and probably a few other things it would be great if they could help me uncover. It would be really helpful if they were also female and gay-friendly. Thank-you. (And by 'thank-you' I mean 'please, please help'.)

LCSW or Ph. D in Psychology?

I'm currently completing a B.A. in Psychology with the intentions of becoming a practicing therapist (mental heath, family, individual, children). Here's my question: the path to practice as a therapist diverges. I can get a Masters of Social Work in two years following my undergrad, but in order to be able to practice, I would need to get my license, which would require typically another 2 years of supervision. I could work, by at a low salary. The other path would be to following up the Undergraduate degree with a Masters in Psy and then a Ph.D. Any thoughts?

seeking psychatrist in the Los Angeles area

A relatively shy MeFi member (and you know I'd admit it if it was me) is looking for advice on finding a good psychatrist in the Los Angeles area. More interested in talking therapy than medication, though not ruling anything out.
