Relational Psychotherapy as a Successful Intervention for Complex Clients: Including Those Diagnosed Disorders
Valerie Fletcher, Leeds Beckett University
Relational Psychotherapy is an integrative, primarily humanistic force focusing on the relationship between client and therapist, whilst integrating aspects of psychodynamic, cognitive and other approaches. This approach allows the therapist to refresh and develop their practice in line with a continually changing evidence base.
This is an ongoing project for the author to establish the experience relational counselling/psychotherapy students have when working with clients with personality disorder diagnoses. What are their experiences? Do they feel prepared? Does it affect emotional wellbeing? Do the complexities the client may present affect the therapist’s ability to work at relational depth?
