What is your trust policy
In my work as a Counsellor, I am very aware of how important trust is in the therapy room. It’s like the magic ingredient that really allows the therapeutic process to begin and flow freely. Some clients arrive ready to share, but for others it takes time to recognise that they are in a safe space where they can allow themselves to be vulnerable.

In the midst, of his exams, he was wondering why he was having to learn some of these seemingly irrelevant things, yet at the same time feeling there were important life lessons that weren’t even considered for the school curriculum.
