We show this by what we say in therapy and the body language that we speak. We go on to talk about your past experiences and how these may have a connection to the present difficulties that you bring to therapy. In many cases, we don’t stop here. We beam a search light on your beliefs, attitudes and actions, and how they factor into your presenting problem. Some of these may be emotionally stressful for you, though. So, we approach our work with a lot of empathy and validation of your feelings..
