So it is during the typical therapy session. Clients come to therapy because they have been unable to bring forth sufficient emotional and/or interpersonal life. They find themselves in a safe, “warm” environment where they can say anything to a human being who is focusing intently on them. Their therapist “picks up” their ideas and “carries” them forward, mirroring what they say overtly and commenting on the unfinished fragments they are trying to convey. Thus they are nourished with complete attention and helped to share what they know but cannot share. They are offered the “food and drink” of unconditional, positive regard.
