THE TASK OF A THERAPIST IS TO START WITH NOT KNOWING
What works for one person does not necessarily work for another.
Our tasks as psychotherapists is first of all to put aside all our knowledge and theories and to listen. To embark on a journey of discovery. To discover what the person we are working with needs.
Then to discover, step by step, how we can use our skills and knowledge to help our clients progress in their therapeutic journey.
To be willing to let go of whatever we may think works or should work but doesn’t.
To encourage whatever increases feelings of safety, acceptance and contact with ourselves and each other.
And most important of all to remember that WE ARE FIRST AND FOREMOST HUMAN BEINGS, then therapist and client. 🙏
This is why I believe that BY FAR THE MOST IMPORTANT AND INDEED ESSENTIAL part of counselling and psychotherapy training is the therapist’s own personal therapy.
