I had more thoughts; sorry to keep posting so much. I realized I didn't really answer your question. My therapist did/does this getting-to-know-me-better thing too. We don't only talk about strictly psychological and/or mental health issues. It felt/feels natural, and he has disclosed a bit about himself (which I gather is unusual).

I think that your therapist is trying to form a healthy bond with you. Clearly, he wants you to feel like a person, an individual worthy of his time. He views you as such; not as some mental patient who was inappropriate or psycho or overly-needy regarding your prior therapy. I think this person may be a good theraputic fit for you. Your letting him see the real you will come slowly; that is okay. He will probably never physically hold you; but i would guess that he will(and does) honestly care about you as a person and it will lead to, or perhaps is in itself, "pychological holding".
