	Small point:  I believe it is transformation of libido, the
transference and countertransference being two separate things.
Jung taught that libido can be transformed into all kinds of
psychic (i.e., mental and emotional) energy.  Freud stuck
with the notion that most all libido stayed sexual.
	A therapist is the western notion of a guru., and yes,
you have to trust in each in order to have any effect.  If your
wife (or husband) tells you something personal, you may not
believe them, but you will tend to believe the same thing if
spoken by a guru or therapist.

	I find it very easy to do so.
