EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : A dream about doctors attending patients covered in blood seems linked to the dreamers relationship problems with her partner. He was in a platonic friendship with a woman that the dreamer did not trust. She had told him her concerns yet he thought it was no problem as the relationship was purely platonic. Why all the blood and doctors? The symbolism is not entirely clear. Perhaps the dream portrays all the havoc and emotional chaos which the dreamer feels could result from this platonic friendship.
Example dream : A dream about having sex with his doctor took place when the dreamer realised that his health was deteriorating. So seeing a doctor in his dream was a literal symbol of his need to seek out his doctors help.
Example dream : Doctors in a dream linked to the dreamer feeling uncomfortable about a phone call. The doctors symbolised a similar sense of invasive questioning she would face in this phone call.
Example dream : A doctor dream took place the night after the dreamer had been thinking how to improve their relationship. He was not good at talking about his feelings. So the hospital was probably a symbol of her trying to "heal" any problems within their relationship. The dream was probably a rehearsal of how she would want to approach the situation with her boyfriend. She was experiencing these events as if they were actually happening. She was focusing on what she wanted to do and her dream allowed her to indulge these feelings.

Example dream : A dream where the dreamer is a doctor was linked to the dreamer thinking about his health (both mental health and physical health). The next day the dreamer was due to see his doctor and so this dream related to what he wanted to happen and how to approach it. The dream was about his attitude to his own health at this crucial time. So the doctor in the dream was quite a literal symbol as the dreamer was thinking about his own ill health. The dreamer is a doctor in the dream because he knew he had to take responsibility for his own health. The dream therefore catches this exact feeling "I need to take responsibility for my own failing health. I will see my doctor tomorrow but what I do for myself is more important. There is only a limited amount a doctor can do."
