Genuinly interested in what's best for you
For the period in which I saw Bill, I found him to be one of the most non-judgemental people I have ever encountered. While he would call upon me to be honest regarding behaviors or attitudes taht were unhealthy, or, perhaps, "underdeveloped," I felt that I could really be honest, and therefore get the best advice. I always felt that he had my best interests at heart. I first saw him weekly, and then moved to a less frequent check in. We dealt with a variety of issues that affected my ability to be at my best, from chronic minor depression, to marital discord - but ultimately I came back to what I originally came for, which is that there were certain life goals I wanted to acheive, and felt stuck and unfocused and unable to do so.
In the end he proved his integrity by recommending (against his own financial interests) someone who specialized in the kind of life and organizational skills what I was looking for. He is to me a counselor, a life guide and even in general terms a spiritual advisor. I would not hesitate to return to work with him again if the time came that I felt I could use it. I still read his blog and find it very helpful.
