« interpersonal mindfulness - 1 | Main | complaining »



A colleague once said to me, "all that fuss about something so small." "We" the concept, the experience, is the prize, the treasure and really worth all the fuss. The content in psychotherapy is often suggested by the patient who may also bring quite a bit of insight to the table. The new awareness created when insight is shared with and cultivated by the seasoned therapist,is the "we." The creative space opens the relationship and the relationship makes more creative space. "We both smiled..."we danced for hours..." the rewards are definitely worth the fuss.
