Active listening

Active listening also involves paraphrasing and summarizing the person's emotions back to them, asking questions to help them express what they feel or believe or asking questions to achieve a better understanding of what the worshiper is saying. To listen empathically setting aside as much as we can of our own "stuff" and entering as deeply as possible the perceptual world of the speaker, is actually a form of meditation. What the client needs is to know that they are being heard. This evidence that they are valued as a human being and supported in working through their issues creates the sense of safe space for their deeper internal explorations
