The relationship with the therapist is a crucial element in the therapy. The therapist offers a confidential and private setting which facilitates a process where unconscious patterns of the person’s inner world are reflected in the relationship with the therapist.
Individuals benefit from being part of a group experience in which family and other difficulties in interpersonal relationships can be worked through using the relationships in the group.
