I went for a "consultation" when I was having a crisis with my therapist. The woman I went to had been a group therapist of mine years before (recommended by my then-current therapist). She asked if my current therapist knew that I was seeing her, and said that she would see me that time even though my then-current therapist didn't know. But that if I wanted to see her again, that I had to tell my then-current therapist.

I did tell my then-current therapist at our next session that I had been to see the group therapist - and she was not angry.

When I started interviewing replacement therapists they did all ask if my then-current therapist knew that I was interviewing (which she did). Many of them encouraged me to try to "work things out" with her. They were willing to interview with me, but I'm sure that none would have seen me at the same time I was seeing her (other than a short transition).

Tabitha - Shame is extraordinarily painful. I wish for you a life without shame.
