Reaching the Client

Reaching the Client

  • Product Details

  • Additional Information

  • A psychotherapist typically builds a relationship naturally and gradually through conversations with a client. Not so the poor astrologer, who needs to go from "pleased to meet you" to profoundly serious - and often psychologically scary - material in the first fifteen minutes! How can we make our way into a trusting relationship with our clients quickly enough to fit the unique realities of astrological counseling? The map to establishing trust with the first-time client actually lies in the birth chart. In this presentation, Steven introduces a simple, chart-specific, and effective method for navigating the emotional and interpersonal dimensions of the astrological counseling session. Instead of the usual emphasis on theoretical, abstract understanding, we will focus on how to reach the astrolgoical "end-user", concentrating on the ways that astrological counsel is fundamentally distinct from conventional psychotherapy.
