During therapy the psychology should try to change the role of them being a psychologist to the role of a clergy. Once, the psychologist does this the client is more than likely able to relate to them. But in this case, you need to understand that there is a boundary that need to be implemented.

Open questions enable the patients to share more about their problems. It is always important to keep in mind that not everyone will open their mouth to tell us their feelings, thoughts or even their problems.
