It’s a fine line sometimes to walk between allowing our clients to express and recognizing when it may be a pattern that prevents them from going deeper within. Patterns of speech can be a common type of personality armour that someone defaults to in order to prevent contact with or expression of deeper emotional material.
From your description I am not clear what kinds of sounds he is making – do you mean he is talking at times during the session or singing or using toning to connect in with his body? In any case to be doing that for more than half the session will inhibit his breathing and it’s so important for people to free up constrictions and restore the free flow of breath and the opening of energy that accompanies it.
So I would suggest you ask your client what their experience is during the session and what it feels like to them they are doing with sound. It will be important to not make them “wrong” but find a way to explain that it is important that during the time of your session to keep coming back to his breath. That the breath will open up new, previously unconscious material and to allow the expression for a bit but you don’t want the energy or connection to dissipate so you will be returning his attention and intention to the breath so he can keep going deeper and deeper.
Hope this helps!

I’ve offered two sessions to a client and a repeating situation caught my attention. In more than half the session he makes sounds while breathing out, even when he is working on other areas other than his throat.
I remember Giten saying in the training that we allow that expression to happen for a while, especially if the person is not used to expressing him/herself. But if it is done too much it can just become venting.
His voice and throat are his resource areas, (he is very talkative and articulate) so I wonder if he is resourcing while breathing… And if thats the case, would it be best to just allow it to happen or eventually encourage him to focus on the breathing?
Thanks for this space of sharing and growing together!
