Healing or Curing - from the client and therapist's perspective

Ms Petrea King

Regardless of the expertise we may have acquired, the greatest gift we bring to our clients is our wholeness. Deeply listening to another person is perhaps the oldest and most powerful tool of healing. Providing a safe environment in which what has been un-utterable up until now can be given voice, enlightens both therapist and client alike. What are the ingredients for this healing space and how does it differ from curing, fixing or helping?

Recorded at the Australian Association of Buddhist Counsellors and Psychotherapists AABCAP  1st annual conference
Saturday 20th October 2007, Sydney,  Australia.
