This podcast is the narrated version of my article Working with Resistant Clients: 3 Tried and Tested Tips.
Every therapist, counsellor, psychologist and psychiatrist has experienced how it feels to be at loggerheads with a client. The idea of ‘resistance’ is deeply embedded in psychotherapy, but how you approach a recalcitrant client can greatly effect how they respond to you and your suggestions.
In this episode I talk about:
- The concept of therapeutic martial arts
- How to avoid taking it personally
- Remember to see what’s behind resistance
- How to use the resistance to your (and your client’s) therapeutic advantage
