That was great advice and your right, don't become emotionally involved with your therapist. It leads to heartache and no progress in your sessions.
I have personal experience with a young 18 year old patient that fell in love with her therapist who was also a woman. The therapist had to finally pass the patient on to another therapist. The young 18 year old was crushed as we tried to help her understand that it was not healthy.
She is drawn to women and has now just gone through the whole routine again with her teacher who is also female, married with children.
It is so sad to watch this happen.
You need to have a trust relationship with your therapist and if that is not there, seek a new therapist. This is my own opinion and I am not telling anyone to switch therapists.............
Take care of you.
