Relational therapy is a branch of psychotherapy that emphasizes the importance of relationships in shaping human behavior, emotions, and well-being. It is based on the notion that human beings are social creatures and that our experiences in relationships with others deeply impact our sense of self, emotional health, and overall functioning.

Relational therapy is often described as a collaborative, empathetic, and non-judgmental approach to therapy. It focuses on the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client, and emphasizes the importance of understanding the client's experiences in the context of their relationships with others, including family members, partners, friends, and colleagues.

In relational therapy, the therapist works with the client to explore their patterns of relating to others, including how they communicate, how they cope with conflicts, and how they form and maintain relationships. The goal is to help the client gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships, and to develop new ways of relating that promote growth and healing.

One of the key principles of relational therapy is that all relationships are influenced by power dynamics. The therapist helps the client to examine the power dynamics in their relationships and to become more aware of how power affects their interactions with others. This can involve exploring issues such as control, boundaries, and the use of language.

Relational therapy is often used to address a range of psychological issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and substance abuse. It can be used in individual, couples, or group therapy, and is often integrated with other therapeutic approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) or psychodynamic therapy.

Overall, relational therapy is a highly individualized and collaborative approach to therapy that recognizes the important role of relationships in shaping human experience. It emphasizes the importance of empathy, understanding, and authentic communication in promoting psychological growth and healing.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process.
