      • “ I love working with people because their life stories fascinate me. These stories have made a person what he or she is and I try to build a bond with each client and from this to see what is unique and to make a link with the interests/stories of clients. Up to now this has gone well. I can say that I have a natural talent for this. In my previous year (in the third study year) during supervision I only became aware of this quality, making contact with the other by means of an intens sensitivity for what is going on around me”.
      • In fact I find myself in a sort of liminial phase, comparable to someone who has migrated to a new country and has to find his or her way.
      • The anthropological term liminality offers a concept that provides insight into the transition from one phase to another.
      • The liminial phase is the phase in which you have left the old behind you but have not yet embraced the new .”
