Yeah, like KD said

The most important thing is he knows I am listening and processing everything he is saying. It is not just hearing key words or replying with "mmhm," "yeah," "right." It is actually being engaged in the conversation, listening to his feelings and thoughts, and asking questions about what was just said or discussed.
I found this to be one of the most helpful tools during counceling! It taught us a great deal about how to communicate with each other.
