I will explain why I think it is good
The doctor has originally developed this method to help drug addicted. In any cases, it is based on the assumptions that people need to talk about what they want to do rather than being told about what they should do. Not only as doctors (or supervisors, or parents, or friends) we should not tell what to do but we should not ask questions that lead into a particular path either.
We – as listeners – we should rather provide reflections about what we have heard and invite the person who is seeking for a solution to speak more.
Personally I talk too much about my own life and experiences. And it can be negative, on the other hand I seldom tell to people what to do. By talking about my experience, it is somehow a reflection about the experience of the other person.
