Do not be taken in by propaganda which claims that some forms of ‘empirically supported’ counselling and therapy are superior to other systems:  “Despite advocacy of empirically supported psychotherapy by the American Psychological Association and other professional groups … it is likely that common factors play a much larger role in restoring client functioning than specific theory-based techniques … Among the common factors that have an especially well-documented place in enhancing client outcomes is the quality of the client-therapist relationship, one of the central features of the ‘common factors’ explanation of change”.
