The teacher enjoys the patterns of their student’s neuroses - Illusory Advice
The relationship with the teacher needs to be challenging if you wish to change, but there are other aspects of the relationship. The teacher may also reflect to the student how wonderful they are – to help undermine patterns of self-deprecation. Humour and shared pleasurable experiences are all part of the teacher-student interaction. The teacher enjoys the patterns of their student’s neuroses because they love the realised qualities of the student that those neuroses indicate.
