It works for me. I have a tendency to get wrapped up in my thoughts and try to sort through what I should or shouldn't say. My T used to let those long silences pass, but now she takes a more proactive stance. She'll usually say something like, "Would you like to share what you're feeling?" or an even more direct, "Talk to me." She's even went so far as to tell me that it doesn't matter if the words don't make any sense. I need that. If it wasn't for those gentle pushes, we'd sit there in silence a heck of a lot more often.
