Your therapist just sounds better and better! Although sometimes a gentle encouraging voice could just about break me up.

I used to lie rigidly on my back onthe couch, hands folded, ankles crossed, but I did miss not being able to see my therapist -- I wanted to know she was *there* even when she wasn't saying anything! Once I began to realise that I mattered, I became seriously confident and used to lie comfortably on my side -- so now I could usually see foot and hem of skirt, and to this day I could still describe the sensible shoes!

With babies, I definitely agree that it's the mix of sight, sound, touch (and smell?) that is important. Lucky for us adults that understanding, empathy, conversation, phone calls, any other form of communication are also in the mix...?
