Example text

His name, like the concept of the unconscious, has become a sort of rallying call. Joining another camp is not an answer: cognitive-behavioural psychotherapists, existential psychotherapists and interpersonal psychotherapists all have their characteristic concerns too. What I try to do in this book is to set aside these concerns as much as I can without necessarily setting aside the ideas with which they have been linked. Concerns and psychotherapy What is a concern? I have already noted that a concern has three elements: emotion, appraisal and value.

Had this been their Wrst meeting, matters might have been diVerent. The concerns that clients have about consulting a psychotherapist may determine the extent to which other concerns can be expressed. Concerns about the therapeutic relationship Going to see a psychotherapist is frightening. There may be enquiry into intimate matters, and perhaps judgement made or implied about one’s personal behaviour. It is also disempowering. Psychotherapy remains an arcane undertaking, about which the therapist appears to know a lot, and the client little.

How does the discussion of concerns differ between medical or psychiatric practice, and the practice of psychotherapy? Very little one might say, if ordinary everyday medical practice is considered, since people going to doctors are just as concerned about the emotional and spiritual signiWcance of their problems as people going to psychotherapists.
