When we end up in a really good conversation with a friend, we sometimes pay them a slightly unusual but sincere compliment: we say that chatting to them feels like talking to a good therapist.
What we tend to mean is that they’re giving us space to talk, they’re not interrupting us or pushing their own advice aggressively forward: they’re properly listening.
This game cannot turn us into real therapists (that would take years of training). But like many good games (ones about flying or being a detective for example), it gives us a chance to try out, entertainingly but safely, one of the most interesting sides of a great profession. The Therapy Game offers us a rare opportunity to listen and speak to one another at truly fulfilling length and depth.
The cards cover five categories: Work, Sex, Relationships, Anxiety & Self
From trying to clearing an office paper jam, juggling remote controls, dropping contact lenses on the bathroom floor, and nudging the cat who absolutely won't let you read your book, the dozens of witty and sympathetically amusing illustrations offer real therapy and poke gentle fun at the meditative colouring craze.
