Therapist dating clients
The patient-therapist relationship becomes a crucible of wellness for many reasons, but the most important may be because it is a kind of living laboratory of all relationships.
When people are hurting, unhappy, frightened, or confused, they may seek help from a therapist.
There is no law, but there are the ethics of psychotherapy and counselling.
And they are just as important as our 'LAW' as it is all about human dignity and human rights, the well being & protection of client and counsellor. The counsellors duty is to promote the clients well b eing and to avoid harming the client.
The person learns you're a massage therapist and wants to make an appointment. Q: You've been working with a client for several months and you realize you are starting to feel sexually attracted to him or her. We know that an absolute rule of massage therapy is not to date our clients or have sexual relations with them, but what about sexual attractions?
Q: You're at a party talking with someone you've just met, someone to whom you feel attracted.
I am horrified that so many television shows and movies depict romantic relationships between therapists and clients as though they were perfectly normal!
