It is not meant to signify a constant cycle of solution/resolution, but rather recognise the journey.

Equally, psychoanalysis may be used if the issue clearly has roots in the development. Perhaps a Thought Record to identify patterns of behaviour ready for the next discussion. However, an easily bored client may need such exploration done during a counselling session as recording issues may feel back facing and counterproductive. Modality may be key; they may like to draw a picture instead of writing a
