Therapeutic relationship is found to be positively associated with the outcome of intervention (Ardito & Rabellino, 2011; Garcia & Weisz, 2002; Karver et al., 2006; Orlinsky, Ronnestad, & Willutzki, 2004). An ideal therapeutic relationship is when the therapist is able to fully participate in client’s communication and understand client’s feelings (Fiedler, 1950). In order to establish a good therapeutic relationship, the therapist should be genuine, trustworthy, warmth, caring, experienced and have empathy (Ackerman & Hilsenroth, 2003; Morris & Suckerman, 1974). An issue surrounding therapeutic relationship is the problematic boundaries between the therapist and the client. Boundaries are the ethical foundation within a therapeutic relationship, to keep the therapist professional and the client safe.

Narrative therapy approaches every situation of counselling with the understanding that the individual seeking help (i.e. the care-seeker) is the expert in her/his own lived experience.

The care-seeker works closely with the care-provider, the latter acting as a resource to help elicit a wide variety of stories from the former to paint a fuller, more authentic picture, rather than a closed, dominant narrative. In the context of forming retreat leaders, the student leader can be seen as the care-seeker and the retreat directors are care-providers.
