Is it impossible for therapy to be effective when a person is in love? I’ve come across this theory. The idea is that being in love in an altered state, akin to being drunk. It’s hard to tell anyone anything when they are “in love”. When you’re in love there are just too many ways to escape. and to hide. However, I have Venus (love) square Neptune (drunk) and this may me personal to me and not true for you.
You have to form an intense connection with a therapist to do deep work. If you have a partner, you’re already bonded. I am not sure this kind of three-way offers the same opportunities.
What do you think? Is being in love anathema to effective psychotherapy?
