“The therapist’s functioning as a witness is of crucial significance,

as one who recognizes and grasps the emotional importance of the client’s self-exploration

in the immediacy of the moment, yet who stays in attendance

without immediately imposing their own supposed wisdom – at least not verbally.”

Warren Poland
