This is quite interesting situation.

It is hard to resist the temptation to be friends with former therapist, especially when you work in the same place and you go to his building frequently, and you are also planning to become a psychologist.

And you have also said you don't want anything more than a friendship.

I would say just go for it. But keep it minimal perhaps. You don't have to go every week. Maybe once in a month? That way you will get the best of both !!

I am always of the opinion that no relationship between two individuals should terminate completely for any reason whatsoever (unless if they don't like each other and want to terminate). If you drift apart naturally that is fine. But if you wish to talk to one another, (as long as it is kind of casual and no sexual encounters etc), I don't see a problem. But keep it minimal and casual so that no other issues arise out of it. Once in a month or two - casual contact - I don't see why that is a big issue.
