Sample text

He’s so cruel . . I don’t know how long I can put up with it. Dietitian: (realises the patient could disclose information of a highly personal nature and decides to make her position clear) You seem very upset and if it would help you to talk about it to me, I’m here to listen. Whatever you say will be confidential between us although if I think, from what you tell me, that your health is in imminent risk or that anyone else may be hurt I may need to talk about this to a colleague. I would not take this step without talking to you about it first (pauses to give patient time to consider this).

Having established the boundaries it is important to keep to them. This is easier to do when they have been openly stated at the start. Many dietitians believe that it will take extra time if they get involved in listening to a patient’s personal concerns. However, this need not be the case if the time available has been established at the start. Counsellors who listen deeply to someone’s personal concerns are trained to establish clear time boundaries and to keep to these both for their own well-being and for that of their client.

Keeping to time boundaries can be seen as being strict and authoritarian. The dietitian wants to be friendly and helpful yet she realises that if she gives more time to one patient she will have less with another and may feel guilty about doing this. When this situation persists, resentment, frustration and stress can grow. It is helpful and caring for both the patient and herself if the dietitian keeps clear time boundaries. Clarifying the time available helps the patient feel secure and safe and allows the dietitian to relax knowing that a structure has been formed.
