I don't think the handshake would give you comfort. See Honore's post for more details. I agree with her that it might actually make things worse.

My therapist shoke my hand when we met, and that is it. I know that if I wanted to shake his hand after every session, we would be analyzing why that was I needed that. He will be open to exploring with me why I might have erotic feelings for him which I have had on and off, and he is aware of this, but we are talking about other things, and he knows the feelings are not there right now. I think the erotic feelings one has for a therapist have different meanings for different people, and it would be disasterous as well as unethical to have sex with a patient. I guess if you took it to the ultimate, what do you think you would benefit, for example, from having sex with your therapist.
