welcome back! we've mised you. glad that you are well enough at least for someone to consider a relationsip.
a relationsip with any caregiver is not only inappropriate, it is actually harmful. in order to help someone a pdoc or therapist must be able to maintain a "psychic distance" from their client. this psychic distance allows the caregiver the opportunity to see and evaluate the patient's behavior objectively. by being able to be objective, the caregiver can make objective evaluations and recommend courses of action that he/she believes will be helpful to the patient. sometimes these therapies may be painful. the therapist must be able to see past the pain to the benefits ahead.
if the psychic distance is violated, the therapist willl be unable to keep his/her objectivity or may not be able to see past the pain of a type of therapy.
i have had a few therapists who have said that they wished they had met me under different circumstances so that we could just be friends. both of us knew that this was quite a compliment for me (i don't have many friends) and was also a reconition of the need for the psyhic distanace.
hope this helps, gaz.
