Background: Although distinctive theorists have taken strong positions on self-disclosure, contemporary psychologist's use of self-disclosure appears to be based on subjective decisions and not grounded in theory.
Objective: To investigate contemporary psychologists experience of self-disclosure when working with clients.
Method: Analysing the interviews of 3 Danish and 3 English psychologists using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis.
Results: Self-disclosure is predominately about the therapeutic relationship and should be beneficial for the client. This depends on the client group and it is suggested that errors made with a client should be admitted.
Conclusion: Self-disclosure is used by psychologists based on experience and subjective opinions and in “the moment” decisions as to whether it is deemed beneficial for the therapeutic relationship.
