I wanted to also welcome you to Babble. It is hard to comment on this without bring my own stuff to the table about my formal T (long story). Can you see another T to help you with this all? You don't have to disclose who he is if you don't want to.
It takes huge strength to walk away from who you love and trust, and to do it for him, shows how much you really care.
Good luck with everything, keep going to school and do what is the best.
As far as you being a therapist soon(so am I), doesn't negate HIS responsibility to keep the boundaries.
I know of more than one T in training who has a relationship with their T which isn't ethical and it is by no means the client fault even if you are a T in training. You can't help what you feel. Neither can he, but he has the responsibility to keep himself ethical in the relationship.
Does any of your friends or family know about this? Because it would only take one of those people to turn him in, even without your consent. I hope things work out for you because I have seen so many people including me that gets hurt so deeply, it is worse than any of the abuse I received as a child. Take care of yourself.
