I think it's wonderful that people here are talking about the different forms their transference feelings, needs and longings take. You did take a huge risk, and it worked! That's what counts. What people have written here- including you- have helped me realize in a much deeper way how each therapist-client pair gradually work out what will be most helpful. Your therapist may have gradually come to the conviction that this was the right thing for you, whereas she might come to the opposite conclusion about another client. My analyst recently remarked that each relationship he has with his patients is different- sort of a co-creation which can't be duplicated. He said, "you can never step in the same river twice, even with the same patient."
