A poem by Diane Connelly. Thoughtful words for therapists and clients to ponder:

Listening grants speaking
If you give me your listening
I have a place for my speaking,
A partner in bringing forth a world with my words,
I pour myself into your listening.
I give you my words, my world, my life.
You Home me
You, through your listening give me dwelling
You give me residence
You, being, grants me, being

Dianne Connelly

Read her book: “All Sickness is Homesickness” I haven’t read it yet, but it’s next on my list.
