Dinah, seems to me that once the transference goes away that that means progress is being made. I take it as a sign that therapy IS working! One of the things my T told me early on in my therapy (and this was in passing) was that it was pretty common for the client who was progressing, who actually didn't need therapy quite as much as he used to, to begin to have some negative transference/disillusionment with the therapist.

Didn't you recently go down to once a week? And I know you have said in the past that you believe you will be in "forever therapy." I wonder however that maybe, even subconsciously, you can see that perhaps you won't need forever therapy, that there is a chance of getting better. And perhaps your slide into depression and disillusionment with your T is a result of this realization? People find change, uncomfortable, even positive change. It is frightening. What do you think?
