The examples she used were fairly mild in comparison to the great damage often caused by the triangular situation set up by a therapist, the client and the client's partner - where the partner is excluded from a very intimate and exclusive relationship
with an unknown.
Is it not a little disingenuous to assume that this situation will not have a high risk of causing problems in a marriage/partnership? Despite the use of therapy-speak, a therapist is sadly only too human and is all too often satisfying his/her own needs.
