This chapter presents an interview by a keyworker of a client (pseudonym Thomas) recently discharged from an AMBIT-influenced team, reflecting on his experiences of that episode. A verbatim account is provided of Thomas describing memories of the therapeutic relationship, issues of trust, similarities and differences between his experience of this team and of others, his thoughts about other people who helped him, and what made the difference. A commentary by the worker follows, commenting on her experience of the work, framing Thomas’s comments in relation to AMBIT’s principled stance and core features, and discussing how an AMBIT framework and AMBIT-influenced team helped steady her in work that was, at times, unsettling and isolated.
