A Poem on Therapy

Therapy, when at its best,
Provides a healing place
Where clients can explore their needs
With clarity and space.

The pressures of existence
May be brought into the room
Untangled and reorganised
Like cotton through a loom.

Or thoughts and feelings buried
Like anger, shame or fear
Are voiced and processed gently
In a caring atmosphere.

Relationship is central;
The therapist must be
A warm and kind companion
On the therapy journey.

And when those client needs are met
With empathy and care
That healing space is possible
When it feels safe to share.
