As to what can be gained, I'm not really sure. If the attachment is causing problems, for example, if someone is becoming attached in a way that hinders rather than helps therapy, it might be useful to examine the transference.
But in the situation you describe, you (and I) see the attachment as a helpful way to achieve growth. So in that case, why not use the attachment without overmuch exploring its roots?
