"The key ingredient for effective psychotherapy is the establishment of an alliance, built on trust and mutual respect. With this foundation, we can explore present difficulties, their roots in the past, and their manifestations - whether in relationships with loved ones, work relationships, feelings about oneself, difficulty with impulses, inhibitions, or mood. In addition to detailing life in the present and past, an openness to considerations of one's inner life - dreams and daydreams - can be of great value, in achieving self-awareness. Our relationship in therapy offers an invaluable window into how our hopes and fears influence our behavior."
