Thank you for your answer. It is most definitely transference and I've talked about it before...maybe time for more discussion. She never addressed it directly...I did. She is "eclectic/psychodynamic" and not directive. I do feel secure generally and she has adapted to me which makes me feel a bit safer to talk about things I used to feel she too dismissed but I know now that I can tip-toe back into those areas if I wish too. It nearly ruined therapy for me with her for quite some time but it must have been the hope and the child in me getting her to come around to my side and listen to me. Anyways, too much about that. Thanks so much it is good that I can come back here whenever I like to read your response.
You're welcome! I'm glad the answer helped. It sounds like you are doing well in therapy and that once the transference issue is worked through, it should improve for you. As long as you feel you are making progress, then it is ok to stay with what you are doing.
May I please request that if you find the service I provided helpful at all that you rate me with three or above? Your rating is the only way I am reimbursed for my answer.Thank you so much!
