Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a category of therapeutic techniques that invite clients to use props and/or activities to express what they are going through or practice skills. 

Engaging with the world around you for healing

Experiential therapy has been successful across many mental and emotional health problems including depression/anxiety, trauma, loss/grief, relational issues, substance abuse/addiction, other addictions including sex, gambling, food/exercise, etc. No one activity forms this method of therapy so any of the following can be considered experiential when accompanied by a trained experiential therapist:

  • Role play
  • Creating art
  • Listening/dancing to music
  • Ropes courses
  • Equine therapy
  • Yoga or other exercises
  • Psychodrama
  • The use of props to re-create an experience
  • Guided imagery
  • Guided somatic work (noticing your 5 senses)

Areas Where Experiential Therapy Is Used

Through this method of therapy, clients can expect of a range of benefits including increased awareness of emotions and beliefs about self, others, and world.  Our bodies hold onto so much, it’s time we give them a safe space to experience a release.

Anxiety

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of the human experience but if it feels like you’re anxious more than you’re not, it’s time for something different.

Depression

There’s a difference between sadness and depression and many people have difficulties distinguishing between the two and that’ OK. 

Trauma

Trauma is any event or series of events that was distressing and it never had a chance to resolve itself. The thing that haunts you needs attention.

Loss & Grief

Often associated with death, the truth is, loss or grief spans all phases of life. From divorce,  career change, medical diagnoses, adoption and more.
