In face to face therapy you have a trained observer to a wide variety of non-verbal communication. Here your therapist draws on all of your senses, paying full attention to all your many exchanges. This allows for the potential of the subtle language you communicate in sessions to be expressed. As we look at one another for example. As we smile, frown or gesture as we take turns talking. The interaction with space and objects or the temperature in the room. Even your experience of the smells and outside noises. All these may contain hidden meaning that sheds light on your needs and how you relate to them. Each is a signal, expressing an important aspect of the problem you are looking for help with.
In sessions these subtle cues form a pattern of communication. This pattern helps to reveal previously hidden emotions and the attitudes and viewpoints that created them. As a growing self awareness develops this leads to a new perspective on your problems. One that deepens your view of them, of yourself as an individual and of your relationships to others.
