Expressive Therapies

Alternates to talk therapy

Ever wonder if there was a better way to get therapy besides drugs or talking to some old guy on a couch?

You might think of therapy as the old guy asking you questions on a couch, but it is not the only type that can help. Many professionals recognize music, animals, art, and dance therapies as effective therapeutic practices. These therapies are can be more comfortable than talk therapy or use of drugs. Sometimes drugs can give you awful side effects that can cause you more harm than good. Instead of feeling restricted to drugs and the couch, these are just a few expressive therapies you could try!
