  • Will not use jargon or 'psychobabble' or tell you that counselling or psychotherapy has to be 'painful'
  • Will not dwell unduly on the past
  • Will be supportive when difficult feelings emerge, but will not encourage people to get emotional beyond the normal need to 'let go' of any bottled up feelings

  • May teach you to relax deeply
  • May help you think about your problems in new and more empowering ways
