“Therapy is self-knowledge, it’s talking to yourself. Inter mediating this conversation, is a privilege and an incredible process. In a therapy room the client is the most important, and as a therapist, my job is to guide him. ‘Know all the theories, master all the techniques, but as you touch a human soul be just another human soul.’ Carl Jung”.
