These words honour the sacred journey between client & therapist. Individually in a pilgrimage for realising what matters. Each lending a hand and being alongside the other.
When I stayed connected to my feeling, you did too,
As you expressed your difficulties, I found ways of being with mine.
When I tended to myself, you permitted softening,
As you committed to your journey, I gained momentum for mine.
When I remained in my body, you befriended yours,
As you felt the edges of your sensations, I heaved a sigh of relief.
When I held myself in silence, you attended to the spaces between,
As you bumbled with what to say next, I found my words.
As you became clear about what you need, I found expression for being me,
When I crossed a threshold, you braved to the edges.
As I meandered, looking for clarity, you allowed darkness.
You & I, I & You, the relational space where we find the alliance.
