Psychotherapy provides a safe, confidential, and neutral relationship to explore what hurts. Sometimes we need to seek understating from someone other than a lover, parent, or friend. Therapist and client sit together in a quiet place being present to any feelings that come up. Distraction and noise from the outside world are put on hold for an hour or a session. This environment invites opening up the parts of ourselves that we keep shutdown, secret, or tied up in knots. Tears are likely, but so is laughter and joy. Therapy is not only about pain, but also being able to live well with the difficulties that life holds and finding the laughter that lives alongside the pain.
