In every disorder there is a presupposition on behalf of the patient, this presupposition leads the patient into conclusions that create the problems he complains about. The duty of the therapist, as an acute observer and listener is to find that presupposition and feed it back to the patient, or lead him to that conclusion so that he gives up that presupposition.
Sometimes the patient gets into details of his presupposition, a way of leading himself into beleiving that presupposition. And it should be noted that the conclusions of the presupposition are never acceptable to the client, but he puts details to it to make it sound correct or "a truth". Once he is led into those conclusions, the patient will start deleting the details he put until he reaches to the "presupposition proper", and there he deletes it as a presupposition that was proved invalid.
Just look for that presupposition, u will have an easier time dealing with the case.
