196. Gustavus

Met with the Client in my office yesterday. I made clear in advance that this was merely a meeting, not a formal session, and thus our interactions were quite different than they have been of late. The discussion was necessary and valuable as a chance for both of us to check in regarding the progress of the program. Wayne seems pleased so far, and is more than willing to proceed. I have arranged for him to join me at the retreat center again this weekend.

I must note here that I am beginning to develop an emotional bond with the Client. This transference is an inevitable step in the process, as I well know, and for both our sakes it is essential that I observe certain boundaries as we press on.
