Question by : What is the ideal patient-therapist relationship?
How do you trust someone enough to open up?
Answer by Max F
That’s the tough thing with psychotherapy, and you won’t normally find out until you’ve finished your first session. Developing trust is just one part of it. The ideal relationship is one where you do feel safe to open up and to work through the problems so you are making headway. A failed patient-therapist relationship can be one that is good for sharing and you like the person, but you really aren’t moving forward. That is the indicator.
