Hi this is my first post, and I was just wondering if anyone has struggled with having feelings for their counsellor/therapist? I've done some research and know it's called Transferance. I was just wondering how others have over come it?

quite a few people have experience transference on here. have you told your councellor about this? they are trained to help you deal with it.

I think its completely normal to get feelings for someone we trust and who are in a caring roll, esp if the are of the opposite sex.... what feelings have you got? sexual? loving? caring? all normal, i even tried my luck once with my therapist, only to get a knock back... but you never know :)
