Listening, Not Distracted


© Helen Lesser 2013

Question:  I’ve just had my fourth session with my first patient. She relaxes well, but her answers are making no sense.

I just treated her today and had the feeling throughout that she was listening to the questions and thinking about her answers.

We had a chat about it afterwards and she said that she was finding it very hard not to listen. I’ve suggested focussing on the relaxation scale, but it doesn’t seem to distract her.
