Transference/counter-transference. It is simple.....In therapy it refers to the feelings the client and t have for each other.
Transference and counter-transference is present in ALL relationships.
If it is the classic Freudian transference, etc....that means you are reacting to your therapist (or someone else) because they remind you of someone in your past...for instance if you didn't like your mother and someone reminded you of her, you might react angrily towards that person.
Long story short.....(other than the Freudian transference).....those are just fancy therapy words for the feelings we feel for each other.
