The client's perspective on psychotherapy (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats undersöker vad människor som har gått i psykoterapi, oavsett

vilken inriktning, tycker har varit viktigt i sina erfarenheter. Syftet är att,

utifrån klientens perspektiv, öka förståelsen för avgörande faktorer i en

psykoterapi.

Arbetet har en kvalitativ ansats, där intervjuer med fem vuxna har analyserats

med en tematisk metod. Tre huvudteman identifierades: a) anledning att söka

psykoterapi b) att välja att påbörja och fortsätta psykoterapi och c) effekter av

psykoterapi.

Resultaten pekar också att klienterna gör ett aktivt val när de accepterar den

hjälp som de har sökt. Betydelsen av den roll psykoterapeuten spelar framhävs

samt den terapeutiska kontakten. Den terapeutiska metod som används framstår

i jämförelse som en mindre viktig aspekt av denna kontakt. Slutligen,

psykoterapiernas effekt är ett viktigt resultat av erfarenheterna.

Abstract [en]

This paper examines how people who have been in psychotherapy, regardless

of the used method, think about what has been important in their experiences.

It aims to increase the understanding of what is effective in psychotherapy

based on the client’s perspective. The study has a qualitative approach, where

interviews with five adults were analyzed using a thematic approach. Three

main themes were identified: a) reason to seek psychotherapy, b) reason to

accept the psychotherapy offered and c) the effects of that contact.

The findings also point out that clients make an active choice when they accept

the help that they have looked for. Another aspect in the findings is the obvious

importance the role the psychotherapist plays in the therapeutic contact. The

therapeutic method used in psychotherapy emerges as a less important aspect

of the contact which is nevertheless still mentioned in the reports. Finally, the

positive effect of the therapeutic contact is highlighted as an important aspect.
