As stated in Chapter Seven, the world of private practice is very different from the public sector, where employees of an organisation are paid to deliver a service to the patient. In psychoanalytic terminology, there is always a third person in the room, employment law. I have found to my own personal and professional cost, that assuming an employee is like a trainee psychotherapist, eager to improve the quality of emotional understanding to the patient, can be a fatal mistake. Rarely, if ever, has this been addressed in the operation of and delivery of therapeutic interventions.
