I may be in a minority here, but I do think there probably comes a point when a person's feelings for their therapist can get in the way of therapy and recovery. Especially if the therapist isn't skilled at using the tranference. Or if the feeligns don't reflect something they need to work on.

However, if the feelings and reactions that a person has for their therapist are pretty standard for them and cause them trouble. For example, if you cling to your therapist and have a history of clinging to others and undermining your relationships that way. And you have a skillful therapist. Then I think those feelings are perfect for therapy.
