sexual element of 'transference' with therapist

Posted by widget on January 4, 2008, at 9:05:57

I have a general question for all. I have very strong positive feelings for my therapist. He calls it "transference"; I call it love. Whatever. He is great with discussing how my feeling for my father get mixed with my feelings for him (or I should say, what I wish my father had been like, not what he was like which was mean). This has been under discussion for quite awhile. Yesterday, I asked him about the sexual element in this transference. He wanted to talk about it later(it was the end of the session). I intuited his discomfort and said "I know you don't like to talk about this." He said something like "just because I don't doesn't mean we shouldn't". I was under the illusion that psychotherapists delve into EVERY area, especially the sexual. My other therapist brought up my sexual feelings all the time; of course, they weren't directed toward her. This psychiatrist is a man. They are directed toward him. Any comments please? Thanks!
