Psychotherapy also psychological therapy or talking therapy is the use of psychological methods, particularly when based on regular personal interaction with adults, to help a person change behavior and overcome problems in desired ways. Psychotherapy aims to improve an individual's well-being and mental health , to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions, and to improve relationships and social skills. There is also a range of psychotherapies designed for children and adolescents, which typically involve play, such as sandplay. Certain psychotherapies are considered evidence-based for treating some diagnosed mental disorders. Others have been criticized as pseudoscience. There are over a thousand different psychotherapy techniques, some being minor variations, while others are based on very different conceptions of psychology, ethics how to behave professionally , or techniques. Most involve one-to-one sessions, between the client and therapist, but some are conducted with groups ,  including families.
This paper proposes a historical excursus of studies that have investigated the therapeutic alliance and the relationship between this dimension and outcome in psychotherapy. A summary of how the concept of alliance has evolved over time and the more popular alliance measures used in literature to assess the level of alliance are presented. The proposal of a therapeutic alliance characterized by a variable pattern over the course of treatment is also examined. The emerging picture suggests that the quality of the client—therapist alliance is a reliable predictor of positive clinical outcome independent of the variety of psychotherapy approaches and outcome measures. This topic, along with a detailed examination of the relationship between the psychological disorder being treated and the therapeutic alliance, will be the subject of future research projects. The main aim of this paper is to propose a historical excursus of the most relevant literature which has investigated the relationship between the therapeutic alliance and outcome in psychotherapy.

Introduction One of the most consistent findings within the psychotherapy literature is that the therapeutic relationship is a fundamental factor that reliably predicts psychotherapy outcomes.

A free-to-use digital tool for completing the C-NIP with clients has now also been made available here. This is a great new site if I say so myself in which clients are asked about their therapy preferences, and then the site produces a report indicating where any strong preferences lay. It is associated with large reductions in drop- out rates and medium improvements in clinical change 1,2. The 4 scales were based on factor analysis and normed on both United Kingdom and United States samples.
