The Inner Dimensions of the Counselling Relationship : Personal Learnings
Garry L. LANDRETH
In this paper, the author shares some of his discoveries in the processes of touching the inner worlds of other persons. Besides the fact that our inner persons need to be heard, it seems to him that we all have the power to confirm another person's existence by listening to their inner persons. Nevertheless, in the process of the developing relationship, it is important to maintain a safe relationship; to respond with spontaneity right out of heart; to realize that pain is a message to be heard; to be fully real; and to have persistent patience in allowing the other person to grow in his/her own unique way.
