    Diana, absolutely amazing and bravo to your metaphor of building " a place where therapist and patient can meet" aside from the inherent mistrust that trauma people have adopted for others. Addressing the isolation and alone-ness...your work is superb and I look forward to attending one of your workshops or lectures in future! \o/ Again Bravo!

    Great discussion.
    I am a psychiatrist who works with anxiety and depression as well as doing couples counseling. I have been doing this work for 35 years and it was wonderfully refreshing to hear someone talk so directly about the power of the actual relationship between patient and therapist.
    I have always felt that what cures someone and helps them move from closed to open is the actual emotional relationship that develops between the therapist and patient.

    One of the things that I still work on is being courageous myself in bringing up how i am feeling in the moment with the patient. How to do this without accusing the patient or blaming them but helping them see what they might be feeling and what I am feeling seems crucial.

    This brings up lots of boundary issues that i think may sometimes be used as a refuge from the anxiety of the therapist in confronting the real feelings he/she has with a patient and how to handle those.

    How to use the emotional states that naturally develop to further their (and my growth) seems to be what therapy is. Honestly i have never seen this taught. I learned it from my therapist because it is the way he treated his patients. It is great hearing the subject focused on

    Thank you for a great interview and sharing your thoughts and experiences.

    I loved this session. Diana, I am living this work as a client and as a new therapist. This meta therapy is a natural place for me to work b/c of my mindfulness practice- yoga and meditation. And the pain of discovering 'no mother' from the relationship with my therapist has been intensely painful and brought me 'back' to the life i deserve, we all deserve...I will come to a training, for sure!
