Aneesa a female client has been in therapy with male therapist for the last six years. She recovered from the psychological illness four years back. Ethically, her therapist should terminate therapy at that time. Therapist provided the justification that “if a client needs to see me then she does so”. Actually, therapist wants to prolong therapy for the sake to charge fee from the client.
A psychologist belongs to a lower socio economic class. He joins the private clinic. There were two psychologists already working there. They did not cooperate with new psychologist in that setting. According to them, psychologist belongs to a lower class and they do not feel comfortable with him.
A female client came with the issue of marital conflict towards the male therapist. She complained that the therapist tried to touch her during session. Therapist wants to build intimate relationship with the client. She did not get the opportunity of getting therapies from the therapist rather she experienced the distressful incidence.
