I've tried to write about therapy and how it works and what it is like but find it such a difficult concept to nail down. There are so many variables on the part of the client, the therapist, the concerns or issues and the style that the therapist uses. So, I get a bit bogged down in those details. And yet, there is something so universal about the process and about my role. I can't deny that. When I sit with clients, I'm using active listening skills and trying to help them find these important pieces to their puzzle.
Anyway, I don't think I could say it any better than Megan Hale, a therapist, does in this post.
