Yeah, I was thinking about this last night, and I realized that I hear people talk about countertransference a lot when they just mean any reaction the therapist has to the client. Not necessarily only reactions that aren't rooted in what's going on right then in their relationship. So, even though my previous description is what I was taught, I think the common usage is more general than that. Just like every feeling we have about our therapists gets called transference, even when it's a feeling based only on real stuff going on in the relationship right then.

Like, when a therapist is attracted to their client. It could be based on some kind of transference of feelings from a previous relationship. Or they could just be attracted because the client is attractive to them.
