Favourite Counselling Quotes

“The hallmark of a counsellor is reliability

“What our clients need is our brains to think with / for them”

one of my lecturers last year

“Clients find relief and clarity through the symbolism of words, through the very voicing of their distress and finding a narrative, a story to wrap around their experience to give it meaning”

Myth of the untroubled therapist

“Borderline Personality Disorder, in the briefest terms I can muster without sacrificing accuracy, is an emotional/intimacy disorder that begins when children stop sharing emotional openness and honesty with others. Why do they do this? Because their parents’ behaviors towards them have communicated the message that their feelings are inherently irrelevant and shameful.”
