Burns CONTRIBUTOR’S STORY: A PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE George Burns is an Australian clinical psychologist whose innovative work as a practitioner, teacher, and writer is recognized nationally and internationally.

She was able to look forward to a promise of the future and sense that her own healing was complete. With her letter she enclosed a photograph of a golden sunrise emerging from behind the dark silhouette of Uluru. She had the photograph blown up to poster size and hung it on the kitchen wall as a constant reminder of her metaphor of healing. WHAT WAS THE LONG-TERM OUTCOME? It is almost a decade since Mary visited Uluru. Over that time she has occasionally sent me a letter, telephoned, or made an appointment to see me.

I asked Mary after having heard her story. This clearly and unashamedly outcome-oriented question is based on the assumptions that (1) Mary had enough depression in her tale without me asking her to explore it any further and (2) her taking the effort to make an appointment, show up, walk into my office, and tell her story indicated she was seeking a change in her experience, and a change for the better. My question was thus designed to specifically seek how she wanted life to improve as a result of just this first session.
