Over 30 years of practice I have found it helpful to focus therapy on four areas: (1) the quality of a person's relationships and how these relationships impact the person's emotional concerns, (2) how the person's emotional problems impact their loved ones, (3) developing coping skills for particular emotional problems and (4) practical problem solving solutions to various life issues. Since most people are emotionally and physically overextended, and their lives are overcommitted, together we also work on ways people can take better care of themselves.
By the second session we develop a general idea of the person's current problems and what led up to them, and consider any medical problems complicating the picture. Then we draw up a list of about three to five issues to focus on in therapy.
Feedback from my colleagues is that my manner is calm, deliberate, quiet and open, but also active.
