Asmita,

It is hard to talk about feelings in general and I think when it comes to talking about feelings about the therapist themself, it's even worse. I have a female T whom I have really strong feelings toward (I'm female too) so it's different, because it's more of a longing for her to be my mother than a sexual thing, but I think the prescription for getting through it is the same...talk about it.

One suggestion that comes up a lot is printing out your post and taking it with you or e-mailing him about your feelings beforehand if e-mails are allowed.

But, above all, know that it's absolutely normal, but that doesn't make it any less painful.

Welcome to Babble, by the way....

Anneke
