Psychotherapy – the treatment without medication, and, mainly, in a word. Psychologist – specialist with a higher psychological education, which, in the form in which it is being taught in most institutions (mostly theory) is inadequate to deal with the provision of psychological assistance. (Not to be confused with David Rogier!). Therefore, psychologists who wish to engage in counseling and psychotherapy are additional training (skills development) in this area. In the studio come to us for practical skills and real experience of consultation and the first difficulties faced by the participants, getting that experience, is to allow yourself to listen to the customer and tell him how you did hear. And want to immediately start a "cure" the client using any therapeutic technique, to give appropriate advice, to show him his scientific knowledge, but it's more to himself a psychologist to deal with own anxiety from the meeting with uncertainty and non-knowledge. Psychologist wants to have an algorithm or scheme – how it behave with a particular client, or how to deal with him one way or another client's situation, that is, he wants to rely on theory to feel more comfortable with a stranger and his experiences. No doubt, the theory is really important, but it will be available only after the customer will be able to believe the psychologist and more about myself and my situation. And here there is resistance from both sides – hard to listen to a psychologist and a client which is hard to tell.
Difficult for clients to talk about his problem because he does not know how psychologist interprets it. In addition to the anxiety of the psychologist, there is anxiety and fear of the client. After the client has come to a psychologist for help, with a wealth of experience behind him of injustice, betrayal, deception, abuse or indifferent handling. He can expect this and from a psychologist.
