Of all the meaningful sessions that take place in a therapist's career, what makes certain ones stand out? Sometimes, it's taking creative leaps in the dark and stumbling toward insight.
Here, therapist Courtney Armstrong shares hers, about a client who had a phobia of bridges, and how she helped him overcome it.
Courtney Armstrong, LPC, trains professionals in creative therapy techniques and is the author of The Therapeutic “Aha!”: 10 Strategies for Getting Your Clients Unstuck and Transforming Traumatic Grief.
"Clients can benefit from seeing our raggedy humanness," Armstrong says. "They watch our willingness to take risks—or even make fools of ourselves—in the hope of moving forward, of supporting growth... Often our own leaps of faith can empower them to muster the courage to try something different and keep going in the face of the unknown."
