So true! When my first real T moved away, and I was so heartbroken, he would say things like, "I don't think it's really about *me*." I hated that. Because, yes, OK, I could have started therapy with any number of other competent therapists, and probably have ended up with a similarly attached relationship. But . . . well, once I started with him, it was *completely* about him. That's what attachment is.
