Default My Psychiatrist Kissed Me

Yes, it's true. Has it happened to anyone else?

He hugged me and kissed me on the lips. I jumped back and he apologized saying "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have done that."

Well, in your pasts posts here it says you are a therapist-- so you should probably be able to make the judgment on this one..

Make what judgement?
I'm writing as a patient, not a therapist.

Right, but if you are a therapist then you probably know an extra thing or two about ethics... so besides being able to decide if it felt wrong or not, you can also look at it from an ethical point of view... and make the judgment.

I know about professional ethics. I'm asking if anyone else has had a similar experience.

Definitely not. I have never had a T or pdoc kiss me, not even on the cheek. I have never had a pdoc hug me. My first T (female) hugged me on our termination day. My current T holds my hand when I am dissociating or extremely upset. He taps my knees during EMDR. A kiss on the lips is way out of line.

I agree with Pinksoil. As a person who was abused by their therapist. Kissing on the lips is way out of line.

Yeah thats a weird question to ask. Its not even close to being ok and he seemed to know it. Sometimes I get scared when I see people who are therapists asking questions like that because they should know that is wrong and not have to have people who are clients and vulnerable answer them. I think that people who announce that they are therapists in posts should be careful about what they post because some of us have a hard enough time trusting our therapist to help us and seeing posts that make them seem as if they are not following their own teaching. No offnse to your question but you did tell every one you were a therapist and that puts you in a bind. My own opinon here probably not anyone elses.
