A relationship with a therapist isn't like friendship at all. The boundaries are very clear - your relationship exists only in the office and, occasionally on the phone if you are in a crisis. Unlike a friend, the focus is on you and your problems/needs/concerns/feelings. It is not symmetrical. His/her issues are not discussed, except as they relate to you. I have had two therapists and they never told me their spouse's name or occupation, their home address, etc, etc. Basic info that we would know about a friend. It is a very one-sided relationship. But if you need help with issues in your life, it is very helpful to have someone you can confide in, without any fear of judgement and without them asking anything in return (except that they get paid).
