Most therapists will agree about the importance of a therapeutic relationship. The quality of interpersonal interaction is the most important therapeutic factor because all other interventions happen within that interaction. The client's problems will not get resolved in interactions that replay the kind in which the problem was created. "We need [to provide] a new kind of interaction, one in which the client actually lives in a new way beyond the old stoppage" (Gendlin, 1996, p.286).
