         Between doctor and patient, there are imponderable factors which bring about a mutual transformation.—C. G. Jung

Similarly to other dyadic relationships, therapy’s success depends on the compatibility of both sides to each other. Research has shown that the most important factor in the success of treatment is the quality of the relationship that is formed between the client and the therapist. Feelings of trust, acceptance, and connection are essential in making the relationship more intimate and committed, and allow a deeper level of collaborative work. 

Ask yourself the following questions:  Do I feel understood by my therapist?  Do I feel genuine emotions in our interaction?  Can I openly express my emotions and reveal my experience? Your response to these questions can help evaluate the quality of your therapeutic relationship. 

Trust is gradually constructed during therapy, and you may even feel mistrust in the first encounters. It is a natural part of any relationship. It is important to share these feelings and talk about your concerns openly. These conversation may, in fact, be some of the most important and constructive conversations you’ll have with your therapist, and allow this gradual construction of trust to foster a stronger bond.
