I think I understand the situation you are in with your T. You live to see her and feel safe when you are with her. I feel the SAME way! I too am not allowed to hug in therapy. A year ago, I was preparing to undergo a major surgery. I had BOTH of my knees replaced. I wanted to see my T the night before I entered the hospital. At the end of our session, I told her I thought about a hug and how it would be so nice but I knew it was against our boundaries. She said under the circumstances she thought it would be ok. So, she hugged me as I was leaving. It felt SOOOOOO good to me and gave me so much peace.
I think if you talk about a hug I'm willing to bet your T will think a hug is ok given the circumstances. I'm hoping I'm right. My T always tells me to talk about why a hug would be so nice.
Oh and when she hugged me, I told her I loved her and she said she loved me too. It was a warm and tender moment that I cherish. We've worked together for over 10 years. We have a strong connection.
Talk about it before you ask and get rejected.
I hope it all goes well for you.
