This commentary threads the ideas about accompaniment in the lead paper (Markman, this issue) with linked areas of thinking. It looks at synchrony, musicality, and the importance in therapeutic technique of achieving a healthy balance right between closeness and distance. It looks at some of the neurobiology which sheds like on musicality, improvisation as well as thinking about trauma and hyper-vigilance, as well as what developmental capacities need to be in place, or developed, for a healthy accompaniment to take place on a therapeutic journey.
