In reply to Lott: Question about countertransference, posted by pinkeye on August 4, 2005, at 13:24:47

I read your message, and I'd like to respond to it. Take the advice for what its worth:

I don't think this is an issue of counter-transference. We don't know what your psychiatrist thought of you, or about you. It is very clear that you had some transference going with the psychiatrist, which is why you asked if he like you (it would be counter-transference if he asked if you like him...).

In a case such as this I think that the psychiatrist did the right thing in removing himself from a relationship with you. It puts both you and him/her at risk, and it is not healthy for you.

What you need to do is find a new psychiatrist, and take what you've learned from the old relationship and apply it to the new one. Also, remember that a relationship with a psychiatrist is professional or theraputic, its never personal.
