Pilate80 Posted November 6, 2010 Report Share Posted November 6, 2010 I've posted a thread previously about having a burgeoning crush on my therapist. Since discussing those feeling in this arena, I decided to share this with her in a session some 6 months ago. That was the only time we discussed my romantic desire for her. Now, after moving away for school, I still have weekly/bi-weekly sessions via Skype. Her support is very important to me and the patient-therapist bond is firmly intact. I've been with her for over a year and have come to know a bit about her as an individual. In our last session, she told me "I really love you". In light of the fact that we have a close connection, I took this to mean platonic, humanitarian love--but when I think about my relationship with her, the latent warmth and affection comes to the forefront again. Is it common for a therapist to tell a patient that they love them, however non-romantic? I think knowing that its commonplace to hear that in therapy, would help quiet my adolescent musings about what it might mean. Thank you Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
