I have non romantic loving feelings for my therapist at times. It's very painful. You're not alone.

Hi, HD.

If you haven’t already - check out the Psychotherapy forum. There’s a sub forum for those that have romantic feelings for their therapist. You’ll receive tons of support there.

Take care,

kitties

no, i dont agree. this is the transference, and if you can work with it and discuss it together it can help you grow.



runnng to a new therapist isnt gong to help bc itll just happen again until you work it out.



i have a female therapist so my transference-love is "safe (maternal)" and doesnt take a sexual form...

I agree. Sounds like transference. Hoping you can stay with the same p'doc. Given this has happened before who's to say it wont happen with the next.
