DEAR DEIDRE: THE idea of seeing a counsellor was to sort out my marriage, not to fall for her.
I’m a woman of 35 and have been married for two years. My husband is 33 and I’m low on the list of his priorities.
He drinks too much and when he’s not in the pub, he just sits at home on his Xbox.
We hardly have sex. In fact, I feel invisible.
My wonderful counsellor, who is 40, is divorced with a daughter.
I had to talk to her about my sex life and then I became aroused. It was so natural talking to her.
I started to look forward to our sessions and then realised I have feelings for her, although I’ve never been interested in women before. Help.

DEIDRE SAYS: She has been your confidante. It can be natural to have feelings for somebody with whom you have bared your soul. But taking things further is inappropriate.
She is a professional and you should keep your relationship as purely that.
You are being distracted by seeing her, so find another counsellor through the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (bacp.co.uk, 01455 883300).
