41cjYQkNxDL._SL500_SX327_BO1,204,203,200_I recently came across this quote by Andras Angyal in his book "Neurosis and Treatment, a Holistic Theory that really struck me as being one of the most well articulated passages on this point around the therapist/client relationship.

"To react to the healthy aspect of the patient rather than to his neurosis is one of the many ways available to the therapist for stimulating and furthering the patient's growth without falling into didacticism."
