Hi Pippa, I'm totally not judging here. I just have a few questions I was hoping you could give your opinion on (if you didn't feel weird about answering). Do you still have sessions with him, or did that stop once the sexual relationship started? And if you do, do you still do traditional therapy work? Is it possible?

Also, were you already estranged from your husband, or if not, was he angry or interested in filing a complaint against your T once you told him?

I too sometimes feel like my T's affection is saving me from something infinitely worse. That all alone, I wouldn't have lasted this long. I'm particularily interested in others perspectives on if the "therapy" has any real therapeutic benefits once the relationship becomes sexual, or even "just" social. Like, can you still get some psychological work done?

Sorry if I seem nosey -- I'm interested. In a vaguely similar situation. [Not lovers though]

I'm not one who can explain the technicalities about why it's usually harmful to the patient in the long run. But I do think you're brave for posting about something so taboo. [though I can't help but also be concerned for you :) ]
Best, Elaine
