"I think it's the listening. You listen you here. You do not actually let one detail go. You're completely there. And this is why as therapist we need to be accountable. We need... to look after our own physical and mental health. We need to be alert  all the time. We can not actually bring outside issues into our work. We have to be there 150 percent."

As therapists we have to always be mindful of how safe our clients feel in our presence. This is not always easy to determine. But now we know. There are innate cues and Polyvagal Theory tells us what they are.
