I have recent experience (after long break) seeing dreams that reveal my emotions about people surrounding me. In the dream I felt people were twisted and odd, I realized I feel that way in daily life. There was also other dream where I thought how people hide behind different faces and something along the lines. These dreams helped to arrange my thinkikg, along with couple psychology/madness books, and probably the actually triggering things, a dog, and a visit at a aquintance in different city who is doctor in the field who I could exchange ideas with.

Dreams can be used as tools in therapy - especially in psychoanalytic therapy that looks at the subconscious. I told my therapist about a couple of dreams, but she never specifically asked about them. Some therapists work mainly with dreams and get you to write dreams down / draw them to discuss in sessions. I think it can be quite helpful, but it depends if that's your kind of thing.
