While sharing your feelings and experiences with a compassionate witness can be incredibly therapeutic, I've found that incorporating creativity can really enhance the therapy process in a powerful way. Even something seemingly simple like a collage (old school cut and paste from magazines!) will help you develop deeper insights and express feelings you may not have known you had. Creative expression is especially good if you tend to be very intellectual and have a hard time identifying what your feelings even are. And if you don't consider yourself artistic, it's totally fine. Therapy isn't an art class. What's helpful is the process, not the product when it comes to being creative in therapy. No experience necessary!
Guided imagery is a type of focused relaxation or meditation technique that uses the power of the mind to create a lasting emotional impression. I have many years of experience customizing guided imagery scenarios to a person's individual needs and preferences. I use guided imagery to help people navigate the challenges they are currently facing as well as imagining their future life and future self. By using the power of your mind, you can have an embodied experience that goes beyond traditional talk therapy. Embodied experiences help you be more present and grounded and thus better able to make empowering choices for yourself.
