I like to use this analogy to explain my role as a therapist to my clients: “You are the one walking the path and making decisions about which route to take. I will be by your side holding your hand as you go on in your journey.”
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the central essence of the therapeutic process. All schools of thought and techniques come later and only work if the therapist-client alliance is honest, transparent and can hold difficult emotions. Creating space for unpleasant emotions between the therapist-client relationship and using the space to address it often gives the client safety and unconditional positive regard which goes a long way. I value honest communication, punctuality and commitment towards the sessions. The clients are also invited to hold me accountable for the same. While the structure around the sessions are fixed, the duration of the session is open for the client to use as they wish. Because this space invites vulnerability and sensitive conversations, I believe it is also useful to have humor and amusement in the sessions.
