As this is a website about dreams, and I am a member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD), I also beg you to respect the spirit of the ethics statements of the IASD, especially if somebody asks for dream interpretation. Only citing some key sentences, here, from the

IASD Dreamwork Ethics Statement

IASD celebrates the many benefits of dreamwork, yet recognizes that there are potential risks. IASD supports an approach to dreamwork and dream sharing that respects the dreamer’s dignity and integrity, and which recognizes the dreamer as the decision-maker regarding the significance of the dream. Systems of dreamwork that assign authority or knowledge of the dream’s meanings to someone other than the dreamer can be misleading, incorrect, and harmful. … A dreamer’s decision to share or discontinue sharing a dream should always be respected and honored. …

Dreamwork outside a clinical setting is not a substitute for psychotherapy, or other professional treatment, and should not be used as such.
