Through good enough contact with someone else, each can come increasingly to know their authentic self as a worker, and to accept and recognize individual strengths and weaknesses. Useful intimacy creates the possibility to feel connected at a deep level.

This combination of feelings is a potent predictor of difficulties. I also still thought I was to offer knowledge more than provide a process and a relationship. My feelings switched between feeling superior, comfortable, and knowledgeable, or inferior, less experienced, and uncertain about my contribution and role (Adlerians call this the superiority–inferiority dynamic; see Glossary).

One major motivation to train as a counsellor can be having received counselling that was experienced as helpful. This can lend a messianic quality to the work, and an unhealthy focus on working with only one type of issue. This has struck me particularly among student social workers who wanted to work with abused clients and women, and with voluntary bereavement counsellors, and those in self-help groups organized around a shared problem. The relationship to the client can then be unduly focused around the client as a “victim” of this experience, rather than being on a person who has had this particular experience, among others, and who is still functioning sufficiently to come for help.
