Why An Authentic Alliance?

Image by Caroline Veronez

The concept of an authentic alliance has multiple meanings.  When you are in therapy you can build a genuine alliance with yourself, one that involves honesty and courage.  That might involve answering questions over time like "What do I really feel will make me happiest?" or "What do I know I need to let go of?"   

 

A true alliance with your therapist takes time. Being your authentic self helps you go below the surface and into the deeper therapy that promotes change.

Let's start building an authentic alliance 

For therapists working with a consultant, ​an authentic alliance means being able to talk about when you feel stuck, challenged or profoundly touched.  An authentic alliance includes sharing when you disagree with each other. Your consultant too builds their authentic connection to you, sharing from their life experiences and learning.
