Thank you for posting these links. This type of abuse is very isolating. Advocateweb was a lifeline for me in dealing with all the left over wreckage. I was also lucky enough to work with an amazing therapist who "gets it." She's treated multiple victims of abuse by therapists, ministers, etc.

BINGO !!
I've put off looking at this because of the title of the forum.
Why is it not correctly titled " Romantic feelings toward CLIENTS " ?

What about help for clients who have been emotionallyabused by a former therapist? Its not always sexual types of abuse that hurt a client.

Trig Re: Helpful links for help if you have been abused by your therapist

Thanks for the links. I was sexually abused and ended up in some "weird kind" of relationship with my psychiatrist. For the first 2 years in the mid 1990's after my breakdown he was fine. Then he started talking and asking things of a personal sexual nature and then gradually touched me and kissed me and well.......I can sure you can guess the rest. He was also nearly 25 years my senior and married. The worst part is I thought I really meant something to him. But I found out years later that I was one of about 30 woman that complained about him to the Medical Board. He was suspended for 6 months, then practiced only with supervision. Then a bigger case was put forward including myself and many other female sexual victims and he was going to be struck off. He knew he would lose, so he didn't fight the case.
Then I found out he was practicing in England as a psychiatrist where they had no idea of what he had done here in Australia. I was horrified after I learnt of this. I then googled his name and found that finally his abuse of women in Australia had caught up with him in England, where he was forced to stop practising psychiatry, at the then age of 72. Unbelievable but true and no I am not joking. He knew I had been sexually abused as a child, had PTSD and other symptoms. I am still damaged because of what he did to me. I wish I could forget all of it, but I can't. As at times he still haunts me within my mind.

I now happily have a very ethical psychiatrist for 10 years now. He was the one who finally made me realised that I suffered from borderline personality disorder and some histrionic pd symptoms as well. I've been able to minimise over the years alot of the traits that have made my life hell for years. It's not easy and at times it's still a real struggle when life's stressor's get out of control. However because of him, I am still alive and I've been happily married for quite some time now.

Please get help!!! To those of you who have been sexually or otherwise abused by your therapist/psych. It's so important. It's not easy, but I know it can be done!

I have had major depression for 25 yrs and been to numerous counselors. I have left some of them just because I did not feel he/she were helping. Also because we just did not seem to be on the same page. I have never been abused, the only thing I can say about my experiences is that I feel I might have been neglected. He/she was looking around the room and I felt not listening or caring about anything I said.

The most important thing EVERYONE NEEDS TO REMEMBER is that he/she works for you.
If you feel uncomfortable or that you are not getting any positive results by the 4th or 5th session, FIND a different therapist. They are just like medication they all work differently with different people. Anyone should LEAVE the moment he/she starts any discussions about sex.

I have never had a therapist ask me about sex. If the subject came up at all I brought it up to emphasize what kind of abuse I had been through. When I had finished what I had to say about the abuse there was no more discussion concerning sex in any way.

Some people are at the therapist for sexual issues but be positive that this is their expertise. Check with the board to see if there have been any complaints against them.
