Therapy With Me is NOT Some Unknown Process:
There are numerous pre-conceptions about psychotherapy. When practiced by a competent practitioner, psychotherapy is about using an empathetic relationship to explore places in our psyche that people don’t normally go to. Once there, the therapist and client use techniques that enliven those places so that they can be explored clearly. It is up to the client, not the therapist, to determine if and how to use those places that get explored. A good therapist can understand how clients avoid exploring those places and gently guide the client through those blocks. I blog a lot about therapy and weight loss. Moreover, many times, emotions and therapy are entirely logical processes. Though sometimes the subject may be challenging, the therapist should always have a process in mind and be logically able to explain it to clients.
