Transference was a word coined by the Sigmund Freud to label the way patients “transfer” feelings from important persons in their early lives, onto the psychoanalyst or therapist.

To put it simply in basic language:
Transference is when a patient attributes feelings to a therapist. The feelings that are misplaced (missing) most of the time during childhood.
Example :
Silvia may be having issues with her father for never giving her attention, and she may see a male therapist as having the same qualities as her father and want the therapist to play that role unconsciously. And it IS NOT appropriate the therapist to play that role.
Counter transference is when the therapist attributes feelings toward a client.
Carlo was seeing a young woman who reminded him of his mother, and he had to work through those feelings because it isn’t just fair to the patient; it is immoral and against the law in some countries if the therapist feel counter-transference and continuing the sessions with the patient.”Counter-Transference” could interfere (get in the way) with successful treatment by the therapist.When the analyst is experiencing counter transference, s/he should free himself of these feelings by having further analysis himself. S/he should stop to treat the patient or client as soon as possible.
