|"Therapy should use the poetic and the scientific together to reflect and articulate the experience of the client, argues Sarah Van Gogh"|
I really enjoyed the article by Sarah Van Gogh. I am a practising counsellor and throughout my teenage years and now in middle age I have always written poetry, having my poetry published as well as performing it. I have found that poetry has helped certain clients to express their emotions and feelings. I was, therefore, pleasantly surprised to find an article on the therapeutic benefits of poetry. I totally agree with the sentiments expressed by Sarah.
