Are you providing safe space?
In my 20 years in mental health I’ve seen over and over that many clients do not feel safe to tell their clinicians everything about their lives. Clients tell me regularly that they’re grateful they can talk openly to me about their sexuality, their lifestyle, their desires, their gender, and their basic life experience.
It’s our sacred duty as clinicians to create a space where clients are accpeted warmly, with unconditional positive regard. I can help with that!
