dc.description.abstractTherapist self-disclosure and its impact on the client experience has attracted increased attention across the psychotherapeutic literature in recent years. This paper discusses the use of therapist self-disclosure in the context of the ethical treatment of clients, the implications for therapeutic boundaries and the appropriate use within the psychotherapeutic setting. Perspectives on therapist self-disclosure vary but, rather than avoid the use of self-disclosure, the research proposes that the client’s experience can be enhanced through the successful integration of appropriate, relevant and timely self-disclosures by the therapist.
