> I see a psychodynamic therapist who is a blank slate type of therapist - but not entirely. I mean I know certain truths about her as a person - not stuff about her personal life. She offers her clients both a sitting type sofa and a traditional analytical one. I've done both and hate both. I prefer a hidden corner with a blanket over my head (but she won't let me try that).

Antigua, is this what you mean by blank slate. That he refuses to discuss anything of a personal nature. I don't think my psychoanalyst refuses to speak of his personal stuff, it is really me that imposes that rule. When I did ask him about whether or not we did pschyoanalysis therapy he said mainly. We do sidetrack I imagine because we do get personal but not really too personal as I don't go there. If and when I ask something personal, which is really rarely, he will readily answer. I could give example if that is helpful. But I guess for me that personal information is not helpful nor wanted. Probably for me defining our relationship isn't where I am at the present and it seems you are. I am still reading the thread and the posts so I will probably post more.

I would say at this point I am so much more comfortable with my analyst. I am used to him being told something like for instance a strange dream I had, really really strange and he did not comment on what he thought it meant. I did not ask he did not comment. Now he might when we meet again. Or if I bring it up. We discuss my dream alot because I am having nightmare according to my husband but I don't remember them. And I usually remember my dreams. Plus my panic attacks are on the rise. Something is trying to surface.

All for now more later.

> She does answer questions when posed. And she wants to talk about our relationship - especially when I bring it up. She believes our relationship is a very important element to our work.
