Okay, this is going to sound really stupid but it's embarassing and I can't talk to anyone about it. The thing is, I've been having CBT for the past few months and I find myself thinking about the therapist all the time, and it's been keeping me awake for the past week too. It's like I'm obssessed with him or something. I don't think I'm in love with him. Has anyone else ever felt this way?:unsure:

Hi this is a common reaction, where the client begins to have feelings for the therapist it is referred to as 'transferrence'.

You might google 'transferrence in therapy' for a fuller explanation.
Hope this might help you,

Thank you, QF, I googled it and found some very helpful information. I feel much better about it now, like I'm not a complete idiot or something. :rolleyes:
