Symbol Drama

Symbol Drama or katathym-imaginative psychotherapy is a form of therapeutic embodiment that combines psychology with theatrical art. The idea is to use dramatic embodiment to explore and express inner psychological states. Participants in symboldrama create their own symbols and metaphors to represent their experiences, which helps them to better understand their emotions and experiences.

Symbol Drama helps people explore their relationships, fears, desires, and internal conflicts. This type of therapeutic approach promotes inner growth and self-understanding as people get to "play out" their inner emotions and conflicts. They learn to recognize their own symbols and metaphors, which are usually unconscious, and through this can better understand their psyche.

An important aspect of symboldrama is that it requires active participation. Participants do not simply talk about their life or their problems - they are actively involved in the process, creating symbols and using their bodies to embody their inner states and experiences. This can help people to experience emotional release and achieve greater awareness of their feelings and thoughts.

Symbol Drama can be especially useful for those who have difficulty expressing their feelings in words. Through active embodiment and the use of symbols, people have the opportunity to discover and explore their inner states at a new, deeper level. This can be an important step towards self-development and solving psychological problems.

Symbol Drama can be beneficial for individuals seeking self-development, understanding of self, and their relationships with others. It helps clients to immerse themselves in their inner world and find new ways of solving problems. Symbol Drama can also be used in educational and pedagogical purposes, where it helps stimulate creativity, fosters the development of social skills and communication.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before.
