“In order to stay in a conversation with a person, one must respect the person’s basic need to conserve his integrity. In order to be able to do that one has to learn to be sensitive to his signs, which often are very subtle ones that indicate that our contributions to the conversation have been too unusual. One thing that helps do so, is going slow when talking with people, i.e., going so slow that they have time to let us know their responses, and for us to notice them” (Andersen, 1990, p.35).

 

Links & resources

These are some links to give a flavour of important therapists and teachers from whom I continue to draw inspiration. I hope you find the material interesting, and that it provides some context to the way I try to work. Also here is a link to the UKCP Code of Ethics which outlines the standards you should expect, complaints procedures, etc. If you come across something which might sit well here please let me know. Please also let me know if the links stop working!

 

Here you can see my listing with "FindaTherapy" The site also provides links to a variety of complementary health practitioners.
