ok if you don't mind.. let me give you my viewpoint..
I was in therapy for years (as a client), and I feel the person I could work with best and most effectively, and btw had the most fun with, was the one I could relate to most, the one who I felt related most to me.
More than anything having the feeling she actually liked me as a person made me feel I could just be myself in a time I was considerably less extraverted than I am now ;)
That meant I was less afraid to show my problems/weaknesses to her.
All that made it so much easier for everybody.
The thing is, no matter how professional you try to be as a therapist, who you are yourself does make a difference in how you percieve your client and in how that client will percieve you and react to you.
Might aswell just be yourself.. :)
Just my two cents worth.
