Hun he is not helping or saving you. Part of getting better is developing your own resilience, learning that YOU hold the answers, you have the power to work thru things. Using him as an emotional crutch is not getting you better. You need to be your own crutch. not saying you shouldn't need or accept support - but what you are describing is not a healthy relationship.
A good practitioner (and this is more in a social worker/psych sense) helps you help yourself. They aid you in developing tools to work thru your anxiety and depression, often with meds. The don't save or fix you, they facilitate you to do that.
I haven't read all of the comments..
I agree that the doctor has been extremely unprofessional and completely inappropriate.
Moving forward its probably a good idea to get another doctor... I strongly believe he has taken advantage of you .. But I also think you need to tell him that it needs to stop, and then if it continues, at that point I would report him.

Hello thank you for your reply (& everyone else who has replied too!)
today has been a hard day, lots of soul searching & trying to convince myself that this cannot go on. 2 but steps were made today. My step mum, who has been my rock through this, I told her. I made her read this thread & she was go smacked & angry (my GP is her GP - who is supporting her through something similar)... My psychologist called & now knows everything - except the name of the GP. She has been in close communication with him throughout this ordeal, & I haven't been able to tell her it is him. Now I'm trying to get the courage to say his name because once I do that, she will file a report with AHPRA (ethics board) & I don't really know what happens then. I will have to find out... I'm trying to tell her, finding the strength! I feel like this is going to kill me, logically I know it will not, but I cnt even find the words to tell my GP to stop because if I do I fear the repercussions. I need this to be taken out of my control, I need to tell my psych...
thank you again ladies!
You have made the best decision to share this with people in your life.
Good on you for taking control of a situation where you were feeling that you had none.
I totally agree with babyla - you have shown enormous strength. Good on you
Good on you today! Be proud of yourself, you are definitely stronger then you think you are. Do you feel a little relieved?
I do feel a little better, though at the same time, very scared & very nervous... This will be hard, & I need to be able to do it. Like I said, I am scared if I just don't do anything and try to stop talking to him, I will fall into this again & again because he wants me to..
& thank you to all of you lovely ladies who replied... :-) it means so so much!!!!
