By the therapist gently confronting or challenging the client, it can open opportunity for therapeutic exploration. Challenge should be offered thoughtfully , and not in a way which is likely to be perceived as judgmental or reprimanding. A client may have conflicting desires or feelings which are causing them discomfort at an unconscious level. A client may communicate with their therapist, not only through therapeutic conversations, but perhaps through their behaviour in the relationship too. If a client is persistently late, for example, the therapist may want to raise this in the form of a gentle challenge. The purpose of this intervention is not to scold the client, but rather to put words to what is happening in the relational dynamic, so that therapist and client can together explore whether there is deeper meaning to the behaviour which might relevant to the work.
