The therapist's therapist!!

I think one of the best things about therapy is being able to talk about what’s really happening in my life.  All those thoughts and experiences that I tend to keep to myself.   I’ve been to some pretty odd therapists, some have had good intentions but poor delivery, and some that didn’t fit for me at all.  I knew these things because during one point in my life I had a really good therapist.  This therapist treated me with compassion, wasn’t uncomfortable when I cried, talked with a calm, confident and soothing voice.  She also challenged my beliefs by frequently asking me to question what I thought was the truth.  She introduced me to spirituality and the idea that there is a bigger purpose to the events and experiences we each have.  She had an amazing effect on my life, my emotional and mental development, and I often think about how things would have been different for me without her. In fact, my experience with her led me to explore becoming a therapist.In retrospect, these conversations were very important for me to have, but the real lasting influence in my life was the relationship we shared.  I knew nothing about how therapy was supposed to work, and she could have probably said so many other things.  The therapy was successful because the relationship we established.
