Underneath the therapist-client relationship two other relationships are operating: The reflective work of the client with his experiencing, and below this the autonomous work of the client’s
experiencing with carrying forward symbols. Without this last relationship there will be no therapeutic effect. In order to make therapy effective it is therefore crucial that the client gets in touch with his experiencing and allows its power to develop. This is focusing. Focusing must be brought into therapy. The focusing skill
contains more than hundred subskills. Examples show how the focusing subskills can be integrated in therapy sessions.
The tPeP (Journal Person-centered experiential Psychotherapy) is the scientific journal for Dutch and Flemish psychotherapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists, that work from, or are interested in a client-centered perspective.
