Counselling across languages: whose mother tongue should we use in the therapy room?

Updated: Nov 20, 2023

This article is inspired by my personal experience. As I speak English as a second language, the question about speaking good enough English has been part of my journey from the start. What if client and counsellor do not share their mother tongue? What if one of them is more of an expert in that language than the other? Do we lose something if we don't use our mother tongue in therapy? I am hoping that I can give some answers or at least some points to consider if you are in the same situation as I was. Have a look and read the article on counselling directory here.
