Hi Sam2,

I think staring at someone when they're say walking down the road or sitting in the park or just trying to mind their own business, could be considered rude or could understandably make people feel uncomfortable, yes. But for a lot of people, making eye contact in the situation of someone talking to you or you talking to them is considered proper or considerate because it shows the person you're giving them your attention. You're not looking around, up at the sky, checking your phone, watching people walking down the street etc., no - you're looking into the eyes of the person who is talking to you - you're listening. I think it's a good thing personally. And it's a sign that the therapist is listening to you as well.
