Somewhere else, violette, you mentioned the kind of emotional violence that analytic therapy often processes.

So, it wasn't a moment of complete concord when this happened

As you of course know, times with analytic therapists outside of the analytic process are few and far between. I suppose they are technically impermissible, but naturally occur. I have no idea if this is right or wrong, but that's the way it was for me. So your T may have felt therapeutic guilt that you reinforced.

Which I suppose you regret because those moments are the ones when you feel your contact is somehow more real.

It's a terrible analogy (though Laing used it so I might) of the comparison between prostitution and therapy. There is a process. You naturally try to stand outside the process to find some more real contact. But, in any case, you/me are trying to grasp or possess what cannot be possessed. Well, you might not be but I was.
