How to Reflect a Client's Verbal and Nonverbal Behavior

EXAMPLE 1 HELPER: What seems to be the problem? CLIENT: I have lots of problems. (Little nervous laugh) It's strange, but I don't

know how to begin. (Nervous laugh) Oh, how strange. (Little laugh) HELPER: Steve, you sound like you're feeling nervous about being here. CLIENT: Oh, I am! Iwanted to come here, but now that I'm here, I don't know

where to begin. Ah, saying it makes me feel better. Okay. Now I'm ready to talk. Yeah, I am nervous. I've never talked to a counselor before.
