I wanted to share this great article by Psych Central.
It is ok to not ‘click with a therapist’ or to not be ready for therapy.This can also happen in a coaching relationship too. You find someone to assist you on your journey of change or recovery and the 2 of you just don’t have any rapport.
From my own personal experience, rapport is very important in a therapeutic and coaching relationship.
Sometimes there have been sessions where a client isn’t managing to make any progress. There may be emotions that are too painful to deal with, or memories that haven’t quite resurfaced. It might be that they aren’t as commited as they initially set out to be. It might be that they are afraid of exposing the ‘truest’ part of themselves.
Whatever the reason, the Psych Central article is very insightful.
Let me know what you think 🙂
