We can’t make people ‘do the work’ (the work of therapy)
We can’t make people ‘do the work’ (the work of therapy). The art of therapy is creating a safe holding space with enough support, compassion, care and trust, for an individual to want to step into that space with us, the therapist, and be willing to look around, to explore, to question, to learn. We (the therapist) are explorers with the individual, using our knowledge, skills and humanness to walk with them into the unknown and to say “it’s ok, you’ve got this”.
We (the therapists) are trained in a variety of techniques
We (the therapists) are trained in a variety of techniques and interventions to work with you, to get to know you, to learn about your particular concerns, how you’ve dealt with them in the past, how you want things to be different now, and to work together to discover and learn how you might make things different now.
