In reply to T's + daughters + weddings..., posted by LostPirate on August 12, 2010, at 18:31:34

I think of my therapist rather as a therapist/mommy. And he says he thinks of me as a therapee/daughter.

But sometimes I'm reminded that it's all just true in that office, in certain times. The rest of the time I'm a client and he has a family.

My therapist's daughter's wedding would probably bring up some feelings of everything from wistfulness to a bit of sibling rivalry. Not quite as bad as when I heard about how touched he was when he held his infant niece, of course.

It doesn't mean I don't wish well for him and his family. It's just a juxtaposition of reality onto the therapeutic relationship.

But it would mean something different, or many somethings different, to each therapy client I think. How do you see your therapist? What do you think when you think of the wedding?
