Psychological holding

Posted by crushedout on April 8, 2005, at 15:01:08

My therapist mentioned the idea of the T "psychologically holding" the patient this week -- i.e., without actually physically touching the patient. I know some of you have written about feeling "held" by your Ts and I guess I sort of can imagine what this means, but I'm not exactly sure.

If any of you can try to describe how this feels, how you conceive of it, when you feel this (in what contexts), etc., I would find that really interesting and helpful. I want to explore this idea a lot more.
