keeping us in mind...

Posted by twinleaf on January 1, 2008, at 18:25:22

As the new year begins, I notice, here, long-time posters who have made wonderful gains in their therapy and their lives, and also those who are just in the midst of their struggles. I recently read a book written by my own therapist. It ends on just the note that has been so dominant in our hours together, so I will quote the final paragraph of it.

"At its most existential level,the therapist offers a relationship which creates both the therapist and the patient. For fifty minutes,the world changes; each is the center of the other's universe To paraphrase Karl Jasper, the doctor is the patient' s fate. But the therapist who has worked for years with the same patient knows that the patient is his or her fate as well Therapist and patient define each other; each, alone, is one self too few."
