I'm really not sure how useful it is for our regular readers for me to continue any form of debate with you on this topic, and of course your new therapist, sadly apparently also a keen analyst, will of course assess the situation in great detail and make up her own mind.
I think you illustrate convincingly some of the reasons I believe psychoanalysis is not only unscientific, and obsolete, but potentially damaging in more ways than one. However, with your love of verbalizations and debate, you will probably continue to be enthralled with the process, even though the problems you began with could probably have been resolved within months by a therapist using proven modern methods.
Navel-gazing tends to be a protracted and fruitless exercise, but that doesn't stop many people from enthusiastically engaging in it. YOu seem to have chosen to re-enter the same sort of knot within which you found these new problems originally. And clearly you really feel the need to see him as sincere and authentic, and to avoid any suspicion that the process might have been exploitative or otherwise wrong.
With an unhelpful habi of intellectualizing, you would most probably benefit far more from treatment methods that did not further encourage this essentially sterile process.
