Dinah-I think it's perfectly normal to form an attachment to a person who provides a warm and safe envirnment for you week after week, and I think it's very different then transference. I agree the definition of transference is as you wrote it, projecting other important people (person) attributes onto the supposedly blank palate of the therapist.
Morgen- One of the things I experienced after the end of a long relationship with my therapist was hearing his words in my head during difficult times. I consider that a successful product of therapy and one you'll probably carry with you for a very long time. I also think your feelings are totally normal, and I think you will grieve the loss of your therapist- but eventually you will realize the positives of your time together. It also helps to get another therapist soon after, one that you can develop a positive realtionship with and maybe be a little more honest about your feelings next time. I wish you all the best- judy
