Individual Therapy Can Be Fun
If your mental image of therapy is sitting on a couch crying into a tissue while your therapist listens quietly, then you may be surprised to learn that individual therapy has a lot more to offer. Of course, if you experience feelings of sadness and need to cry quietly, that’s perfectly okay. That might be part of your process. But you are a multi-faceted human being with many different emotions and it’s possible to explore all of them through individual therapy.
Sometimes, therapy might even be fun. While we often think of “play therapy” as something for children, there are aspects of it that you can incorporate into individual adult therapy as well. When was the last time that you just played? Doesn’t that sound so freeing? You might express yourself through drawing or acting. Of course, in therapy, we use what we learn to help you through challenges and problem-solving. Nevertheless, there might be play, and it might be fun.
