Tina had been consulting with psychotherapist Salma Ferrari for several years. Bette didn’t know the woman personally, but she had heard positive feedback from her wife, so she decided to visit her. Bette deliberately didn’t want to go to a doctor she’d worked with for quite a few years. She wanted the new therapist to look at the whole situation with fresh eyes, without looking back at past meetings and conversations.
Salma pays close attention to small details, behavior, gestures, facial expressions, and everything that helps her understand the person who addressed her. She seems to read more between the lines than she takes in a specific story. She believes that a person who seeks help from a psychotherapist can very rarely clearly convey what they care about. A first-person story is only a small part of the foundation that you need to work with to achieve a positive result. Tina described her as a doctor who conducts a dialogue, not just listens or talks. According to her, this is very conducive to intimacy, the feeling as if you know each other very well and can trust each other. Some may find this unprofessional, but Salma helped a huge number of people when she did what she thought was effective.
It had been a week since Tina and Bette had talked about seeing a therapist, and today was Bette’s second session. The first session went on for a long time and was fruitless, because Salma was silent for the entire 60 minutes while Bette told the whole story. After this session, the brunette realized that she could talk about it, but did not know whether to continue, because the doctor’s behavior confused her, because of Tina’s words, She expected something completely different. She expected at least some questions from Salma, but she’s only asked her to tell her everything, and she fell silent and just listened. Bette decided to go for a couple more sessions and then decide whether to do it again.
Today, they have begun to engage in dialogue. Tea was brought to them, and Bette sat down in the chair opposite Salma and gave her a small smile as she sipped from her mug.
