It is important for me to get to know the person I am working with and to find out what has initially brought them into therapy. Most people have some idea about what they are feeling uncomfortable with in their life and what to feel differently. It is my job t help facilitate a discussion that will lead us to their goal and to make if very clear for both them and I to start the work.
Like most relationships they start with mutual respect so that trust can emerge between them.
That the therapist is not judging them or making assumptions. They are in a safe place with a person who want to help them.
