We all want to give the best results possible for our clients, I’d like to share with you what works well in my practice.
We also talk about boundaries that we know are essential for healthy relationships. For therapists, boundaries aren’t just vital for their relationships with family, friends and colleagues; they’re also critical for their relationships with clients.
Let’s imagine a family situation where your client only gains the support needed when they are sick, struggling or overwhelmed.
Unconsciously they have learned that in order to get the most out of their attachment figures, appearing strained or unable to cope brings out the love and connection all children require to thrive. We don’t even think about this, its completely unconscious – this sense of “I don’t really expect anyone to be there for me, unless something is wrong”
Even when we’re in a different situation as an adult but the body response remains the same. We develop habits of response in our bodies.
Unless we include implicit body memory we may see only incremental improvements in our clients and ourselves. What I’ve noticed is that when we don’t include what the body remembers, the best therapeutic interventions tend not to stick, long term.
