“Every therapist will, over the course of his career, encounter a patient whose problem sufficiently mirrors a difficulty for the therapist which is still unresolved. In this situation, unless the therapist is aware of the existence of their own pathology and can take it into account, they may respond to the patient in a defensive, resistant or blaming manner. Technically, this would be called ‘counter-transference resistance’.”
