Bypass the Mind. Let the Emotions Arise.

Ann Randolph, on Using Improv Techniques to Access Deep Emotion


It’s a simple exercise—imbue one part of the body with a feeling and explore it, just like an actor would. Stomp around the room with angry hips. Look at the world through the challenging eyes of a jaguar.

Improv actor, Ann Randolph, explains that this technique bypasses the mind and unfolds naturally into a whole body experience of the emotion in its fullness.

In a brief clip from a Bonus Session for our Webcast series Moment by Moment in the Consulting Room,—Ann shows how easily techniques like these can be incorporated into a therapy session.

    There is an enormous difference between actor training and mental health training. I am terribly uncomfortable that you are offering an improv actor’s training exercises in the context of mental health therapy. I have extensive experience in both and find this extraordinarily irresponsible.

    What a great idea. Love this and can’t wait to try it with clients. I can see this working very well with clients who have a hard time getting out of their cognitive processing.
