romantic transference

Posted by Vanessa on August 5, 1998, at 18:54:11

Dear Dr. Bob:

I understand that a romantic transference is a most natural thing--and perhaps a beneficial thing--to occur. I, however, am not handling it well. I do not want to talk about it with him, and I behave like a cornered bunny, terrified and ineffectual. For example, after my last session I left a message with his service cancelling our next appointment, saying that I would reschedule in a week or two.

I know there are no "supposed to"s--and perhaps the way I am handling myself is appropriate for the nature of my pathology--but how can I begin? Can you recommend any literature about this?

We have been working together since January--twice per week in the last three months. Others tell me that it seems like a trust issue and that as trust develops, I will find my way. (It may be useful for you to know that I am an incest survivor.) Any guidance you could offer would be appreciated?

In good faith,
