“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stand…provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give another.” – Carl R. Rogers
