“Where’s your couch?”
It’s a question I’m often asked. And I can see the apprehension in their eyes. The idea of lying down, feeling vulnerable and exposed, can become a huge hurdle in seeking therapy. For the record, I don’t have a couch, or a clipboard. What I do have is a light airy room with a few chairs, and a footstool if you’d like to put your feet up, to enable you to feel as comfortable as possible as you share what troubles you.
