Your wanting to be held makes complete sense. We are human. period. Humans like touch. In fact, if a baby is not held he/she will not gain any weight and will die. I had a good family friend that held me several times, while I cried(sobbed, really) around the time my mom died. It was not anything sexual; it was extremely comforting. Obviously, professional psychologists cannot be allowed to do this becuase of so many fine lines that really should not be crossed in most therapy situations. The good of this rule far outweighs the bad. But it doesn't mean the bad (consequences of having the no touching rule) doesn't exist. But psychological holding is real, and does feel real to the spirit. It sounds like you have a good, healthy relationship with your therapist.
