You will upset your clients

Apparently innocuous comments can upset your clients. You can't avoid triggering issues unknown to you, but you can be ready to respond if they are brought to light.

My client is crying

Trainees (and clients) need to know that crying is common in therapy. Experienced therapists need to remember that crying may be common in therapy, but that crying in front of a stranger is probably a rare experience for any given client: you may now be relaxed about the situation, but they aren’t!
