Rapport is a state that occurs when two people feel that they are truly able to connect with and communicate with one another and is usually based on shared interests, values, and other personal factors.This feeling can be promoted through mutual attention, positivity and ongoing eye contact, matching breathing rhythms and mirroring body postures.

This type of relationship is one therapists attempt to cultivate with clients. This level of honesty, trust, and mutual communication is essential for an effective therapeutic relationship.
