We do that, by firstly practicing awareness as teachers ourselves.
Often we begin our group meetings with an awareness meditation from the Buddhist tradition. By doing this, we open ourselves to our own perception. Today I still think warmly of the invitation of my own therapist and trainer Manfred Ley at the beginning of every meeting: Whether it is bodily sensations, emotions, thoughts, fantasies, dreams and so on And I try to treat my own perceptions and experiences with kindness and consideration. What do you perceive while you are working with your client? Nothing is further away than my own feelings.
It's as if I am cut off from them. Perhaps he also feels cut off from his feelings.

That I am thinking of him. And that I am feeling with him. At our next meeting my client was much closer to his feelings. Right from the start it was much easier, much easier than I could have imagined to tell him about my supervision and my feelings for him. My wife noticed that too. I had probably been quite cut off from my feelings. As a Gestalt therapist I always assume whatever is, has its own value, has its own necessity.
That it once averted some misery. That it once was a help, an attempt to resolve a problem. So, what would your being cut off from your feelings have been good for? If he would have felt anymore strongly deeply , it would have been unbearable intolerable for him. He would not be able to bear his unhappy situation any longer. And would try to change it. Please note the double meaning of the English word "drill". When I first saw Erving and Miriam Polster working as therapists, only one way to describe it occurred to me: A gentle, tender dance.
Their therapeutic work moved easily. It began like a friendly conversation. Sometimes it became just a conversation amongst friends. One laughed a lot - and one cried a lot. The intimate was talked about in the same matter of course, with which one speaks ordinarily day-to-day. The therapeutic work moved easily between what seemed superficial and what seemed deep.
Erving and Miriam Polster were simply there. In a well-meaning manner. And in such a way that the ordinary became something special. Up to then I had experienced my own work as a therapist as rather clumsy heavy-handed. Not very flexible Not very flowing.
Erhard Doubrawa: Attitude and Art of Intervention in Gestalt Therapy
As if I wanted to force something. As if I wanted to break down a wall. The wall of a bomb-shelter perhaps. It was not without reason that my friend and colleague Horst ter Haar had given me a small silver clip-on drill, which he had had made by a goldsmith for me. This "Gestalt Drill" represented the way Horst had seen me working with clients. Especially in this connection I remember a piece of work, which I had done with a very closed young man.
I had let him beat a pillow on the floor for such a long time, at the same time letting him scream, until he was totally exhausted and "soft-boiled". When I think today about this work, I feel mostly ashamed. I had the impression afterwards that at that time I wanted to break his resistance. In fact I really did not welcome his resistance.
I found it disturbing. At least for my work with him. I think that his subsequent staying away from the therapy group most likely had something to do with it. He simply did not experience accepted by me exactly as he was. He would have got the impression from me that something was "wrong" with him. He must have had a reason nevertheless for participating in the group: But at that time I was not able to respect or honour that. I think today that at that time I certainly gladly wanted to achieve a success or a "breakthrough" with him and therefore did not know how to honour the meaningfulness of his resistance.

I therefore did not recognize to what extent his resistance represented an attempt to solve a problem. And I am afraid that my way of working robbed my client of a possibility of solving his problem. I still remember, how the young man was sitting exhausted and crying on the floor of the group room. Completely soaked with sweat. Soon after this work our weekend group was over.
As far as I remember his was the last work of the weekend. Afterwards he did not come back. All attempts to contact him by telephone came up empty. In this same connection yet another piece of work occurs to me, where I - in love with techniques - missed the actual process of the client. A withdrawn, shy young man spoke about some topic or other in a weekend workshop for "young adults", which I led for a Catholic educational institute.
He spoke quietly and reservedly, and he was somewhat tight. While he was talking he was jiggling his foot. I asked him to reinforce the jiggling movement and to make it stronger - and then even stronger. The jiggling became a stamping movement. I encouraged him to use his voice to accompany the movement. I then pushed him even further - and finally the movement culminated with him jumping into the middle of the room - accompanied by a scream.
The same thing happened here - the Workshop was almost at an end. Yes, now I remember: The young man had spoken about how much he was suffering from his German Military Service, which had begun a few weeks earlier. More than one year later another participant in that group told me that the young man - so torn open as he was after this weekend workshop - could not imagine how he would be able to begin his service back again at his barracks on Sunday night. Somehow there were consequences involved.
However I have forgotten what they were. So much for the subject of resistance - resistance on the part of the therapist. I experienced my work as clumsy heavy-handed at that time. I was very success-oriented in my work at that time, as if everything depended on me and my interventions. In fact I enjoyed my effectiveness the way I worked.
I felt influential and important. Later I met my Gestalt teacher Hunter Beaumont. I once tried to impress him with my "therapeutic potency". He had me do the following fantasy exercise. Since then things have never been quite the same for me. I should imagine, that I had just been born, and was totally covered with blood. My mother was still bleeding from the birth. I should spread this blood all over my hair and my face.
Then I should look at my mother, weakened from the birth process, and say: I felt ashamed, I lowered my head, looked down in front of me onto the floor. At the same time - as " a total bodily response" - I involuntarily lowered my head even more.

Then my tears began to flow. I felt a deep pain. And quite a while later I felt a soothing warmth, a strong connectedness and sense of belonging. That was the humility of a human being experiencing his own creation, the awareness of actually belonging to Creation. There was nothing that needed doing - just the conceiving, the receiving from the "Great Mother".
