Lee, thank you for your discussion. I also noted that showing empathy with your client is an excellent way to begin a healthy therapeutic relationship. Using verbal and nonverbal cues to the client is an easy way to show them you are listening (Fife, Whiting, Bradford & David, 2014).

I also mentioned being present during the therapy session is vital to establish a continual verbal and nonverbal dialogue with the client.

You made an valid point that therapy is not just limited to the troubled or weak. Thank you for pointing this out in your discussion. It is very important to understand this concept. I agree that therapy needs to be a positive experience in order to continue client retention.
