According to psychologist Elena Touroni, Schema Therapy involves a close therapeutic relationship between therapist and client as it takes a compassionate approach to help make people aware of difficult feelings.

Schema Therapy is an incredibly compassionate approach and it helps clients understand themselves better. It helps them get their needs met more effectively in relationships. And it involves a whole range of different structures and techniques, from cognitive techniques where people might be monitoring how they get triggered and what happens for them and what coping strategies they might be using that are really unhelpful to them, how they see themselves and the world and other people, what are the main things that tend to make them feel very intense emotions, but also other structures that are much more experiential and are trying to get clients in touch with really difficult feelings that they might be blocking or might be detached from. Schema Therapy involves a very close therapeutic relationship with your therapist because one aspect of Schema Therapy is something that we refer to as limited re-parenting. So the therapist is trying to give the client an alternative experience of a relationship, particularly if the client has had a very difficult early life and very difficult experiences with their main caregivers.
