Thought for the Day: The therapist’s intuition


Intuition is something that we might forget to take out as an important tool in our day to day lives.

As a therapist, I’ve learned how to hone in on my natural intuition in order to sense and perceive things happening in the counselling room with my clients, and between myself and my clients.

There is always unconscious and conscious communication going on between two people – more if outside the therapy room.

There might be different things that arise in the therapist that they might recognise as “not theirs”.

This is where intuition comes in – listening to those things that “aren’t theirs”, therapists are honing in on what might be going on for the client in their lives outside the counselling room.

This is important as it might be shedding light into something that needs to be worked on – in a similar way that dream analysis can be helpful when a client brings their dreams to the therapy room.

Creative work arises from intuition, dreams, and unconscious communication.

Of course there’s more to it than that, but I’ll leave you to consider how you use your intuition in every day life, or in the counselling room if you’re a therapist.
