    This may sound like an odd answer, but I would say, compassion. These therapies are used especially with those who have trouble putting words on their emotions. Creating a safe environment and stimulating the client's creativity are key. Build safety, then be encouraging, and be open to helping the client heal by being creative or discover the meaning of symbols through introspection. Being intuitive and helping others to open to their intuition is good, too.
