I think the backstory affects how I see all his sessions. I know my feelings about him changed dramatically after that first Friday session with Gina.

Although erotic transference and countertransference hasn't at all played a role in our relationship, we've discussed it in theory. I think my therapist comes down on the side of acknowledging feelings. I think it must be difficult to do that without encouraging some feelings of romeo and juliet and thwarted passion. But clearly your therapist did a good job, and maintained your relationship and the boundaries.

I'm not really all that much like Sophie. Maybe in a very muted form, and without hardly any of the anger. I don't do anger well. My therapist is delighted when I show any anger. I'm not like Sophie, but my therapist is kind of like Paul is with Sophie when he's with me.

But I'm not at all like Laura or Alex or Amy or Jake. My therapy wouldn't make good TV. :) I must be represented by those clients we *don't* see.

What I find most amusing is how really accurate his clients interpret his statements and stances. While I'm not have bad at picking up shifts in his mood, I generally assume they have something to do with me. I don't think I'd be able to guess with enormous accuracy what he's thinking (as opposed to feeling). I'd be more likely to say something like "What have I done?"
