TO BE POSTED
Psychotherapy is a process that requires the willingness for risk and uncertainty – for client and therapist alike.
It is within these areas of difficulty that some of our most important learnings about ourselves take place.
“Years ago, when I was beginning
and struggling to get clients into their
therapy, striving to keep clients in their therapy,
trying to learn what therapy is,
a dear supervisor gave me advice that has stood me
in good stead ever since.
Tell your clients something they can use
and they will come back for more.”
– Warren Poland
