Sounds ridiculous...but this person should be neutral ground. They are there to help you through your mental processes. Jealously, longing, devious urges, filthy thoughts, deep rooted psychological trauma...is it taboo or are you asking for trouble or is this something that can be casual? Hmmmm....

Once you cross that line, they're no longer your therapist, because they have become emotionally involved...

In addition to being unethical, this is actually extremely damaging, which is WHY it's unethical. Once the therapist has crossed that line into transference, they are part of the PROBLEM, not the solution.

Agree. Plus, in many states in grounds for the therapist to lose their license.

There are two requirements to sleeping with ones therapist.

#1...should be of the opposite sex

#2...should have large breasts

Then it is O.K. to sleep with your therapist

scold It's a big NO

During therapy, you can easily get infatuated by your therapist and mistaken his/hers compassion and empathy with real emotions. It's called transfer and it's very common.

Though no one acts on it, they just need to know what it is and deal with it. It's a breaking of every moral code and ethics for a therapist to engage in such a behavior with a client.

I know a girl that lover two years ago gave a therapist 50,000 and he moved out of state and only payed her back around 12,000, she had to call him so many times to get money. He told her it was an investment..Me an a friend offered to bring her to the DA but she has faith in this guy and nothing in writing.
