married, but lately I am having fantasies about having sex with my therapist.
Telling my therapist is out of the question, so will I end up trying to seduce
him if I dont tell?
There is no way for anyone to predict exactly what will
happen if you dont talk about the fantasies. But I can guarantee that
if you dont talk about them, whatever happens wont be pleasant.
And it wont be psychotherapy.
The truth is,
usually arent even about sexuality; if you make the effort to examine
them psychologically and objectively, you will find that they usually point
to deep, unresolved emotional conflicts about a need for acceptance and a
fear of abandonment, usually deriving from emotional
wounds in childhood because of parental failures.
If you talk about
these erotic feelings in
psychotherapyand if your psychotherapist is competent enough to interpret
themthen you have a chance to heal those conflicts. And that
will be psychotherapy.
