As It Is

Whenever asked what the necessary disposition for a therapist is, I always answer "ability to accept things as they are".  However, it does not mean to believe theories easily or blindly. Rather, to perceive what is in front of you as it is, this is what the words, "to be able to accept things as they are" means. We are prone to modify received information as we judge. However, if we do like this, we can never grasp the original meaning that the information conveys. At first, let us follow our own feeling straight as it is. Everything starts from here.
