What does it mean when you dream about a shrink?

If we dream about shrinking, perhaps the dream relates to our childhood. Alternatively, maybe we are “feeling small.” When other things shrink, it may be a representation that they are playing a smaller role in our life than formerly. We also sometimes refer to shy people as “shrinking violets,” and to psychiatrists as “shrinks.” (See also Little, Small).
