Pouring Icky a Cup of Tea

My therapist and I have embarked on a different form of therapy.  It’s a combination of hypnosis and guided imagery to help me desensitize to traumatic memories.  She warned me that I might leave our sessions feeling worse for a while.   She was right.

Still, I’m optimistic and, as always, game to try something new that might up the quality of my life.  Feeling icky is nothing new.  Icky and I are old friends.  I know how to shake its hand and pour it a cup of tea.  The possibility of feeling better is an incredible motivator, even if I can’t feel the motivation right this minute.  All I can do right now is put the kettle on and go back to see my therapist next week.

I’m still on the Adventure.

    Love your daring and slightly tongue in cheek attitude. You’ll get it right, I’m sure. I shall join you in a minute with my mug of tea. And I ‘ll cheer you on with my brew. Love

    I’m quite interested to see how this type of therapy works for you. I think sometimes we have to be hopeful and optimistic. It puts a little skip in a step where we’ve been prone to plod along.

    This is a great approach and I’m glad you are trying it. Even if it leaves you feeling uncomfortable after sessions early on, you should start experiencing relief around the memories you work on within a few weeks. New things, change, makes us all uncomfortable. Just go with it. Pour some more tea.💕
