I was fascinated to read this, as well as being appalled and astounded- no matter what your personal feelings about what is, and isn't. helpful in various types of psychotherapy, this is an extraordinary example of countertransference in a sick psychoanalyst, run completely wild. It's hard to imagine a situation like this going unchecked for years, but I know it happens, having had a milder version of something similar happen to me (if interested, look up "Pfinstegg", my old posting name, for around 2007. Thankfully, i found a sound and very helpful analyst just after the terrible experience with the first one, and am doing a whole lot better in every way - even getting ready to terminate.
Thanks or posting such fascinating "gossip"!
