The Role of a Therapist

The role of a therapist is to act as a guide in this process. By listening carefully and with compassion, the therapist is a witness to this process of self discovery and brings the added benefit of an objective perspective. By offering insights and alternatives to habitual patterns, a therapist can support the therapeutic process to be a safe and accepting experience.
