We all have within us the resources to cope with life’s challenges. However, as part of being human, we also have emotional vulnerabilities or weaknesses that we live with. At certain times in our lives, life’s challenges can overwhelm our established coping mechanisms and expose the vulnerabilities with which we live. It is at times like this that a person, couple, or family may reach out to a therapist for help.

The therapist must make a connection with the client inspiring a trust that allows a client to open up about the pain he or she faces, be receptive to the help offered, and to make the efforts required for change and growth. The therapists role as a catalyst for growth involves creating an environment of emotional safety, trust, and understanding that helps a client push themselves to make the changes needed to improve his or her life.

In fulfilling that role, the therapist needs to balance his own optimism that change is possible with a sensitivity to the client’s position in terms of readiness, confidence, and hope for change. That sensitivity will guide the therapist in knowing when a client is ready for specific advice-strategies, when a client needs assistance managing the discomfort that comes with change, or when understanding of the client’s fears about change is required.
