A truly therapeutic person relates to the essence of you even when you don’t feel you have an adequate way to communicate your thoughts, experience and need. The impact of a therapeutic person stays with you long after the encounter has ended.
You carry away the sense of being heard and maybe even understood! You carry forward the encounter. It is the essence of the truly therapeutic person that remains with you. They help us feel more competent and more able; they help us help ourselves.
We are enriched by these encounters.
