I believe that you may be entering another, deeper phase of therapy. In attachment therapy, it is common to see this when the patient allows the attachment more completely - when you can truly feel your therapist's caring. The psyche then opens to many past feelings of abandonment and misatunements of the mother (usually it is the mother, it can be another care taker.) It is very, very painful to feel all of this, even with a strong anchor and ally. I'm not surprised it is showing up in your dreams as your mind tries to work it through. And a big part of this is the fear of loss - admitting you care about this person and they care about you may feel like tempting the fates. And it gives your therapist power to hurt you, which likely activates huge fears.

Isn't it just terrible that something so great like your therapist's caring also creates a crisis of sorts in your unconscious? I swear I was better off when I didn't know I had one.
