(YES, this is a real story) From ABC News.
A Hunter Valley psychologist who was obsessed with the rock group Van Halen has been struck off for having a lesbian relationship with a patient and acting unprofessionally.
The Healthcare Complaints Commission alleged psychologist Roslyn Moore had a brief sexual relationship with the patient in May 2006, while treating the woman at the Dolphin Healing Centre in Cessnock.
Ms Moore is also alleged to have offered reduced fees and used inappropriate treatment methods to “cure” the woman of her homosexuality.
The Psychologists Tribunal also heard Ms Moore was obsessed with the rock group Van Halen.
The patient told the tribunal during her final treatment session that her psychologist gave her a ring and said “You’ll know what to do with it”, which she took to mean that she should give it to whichever of the Van Halen brothers she came across first.
Ms Moore has been banned from practicing for at least three years.
The ban prohibits Ms Moore from providing therapy, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy or counseling.
