> I like the image of a conversation with your cat. They are so self-contained and full of confidence. I guess I want to know if you felt vulnerable or exposed. I'm so use to guarding myself that the treatment feels invasive looking at it from the outside.

The therapist had me bring up a picture in my mind of Rascal in her favourite place (a rose bush in the front yard) with me sitting beside her. Then she had me watch this conversation as an observer, so I was reporting the exchange but not overtly participating (I wasn't repeating the conversation verbatim). My cat and I had such a strong rapport that it was easy to conjure this image. I'm not guarded at all with this therapist, just very willing and eager to be well again. From the outset, she has impressed upon me the importance of this exchange of energy; the use of soothing colours and sounds in my environment, and meditate, meditate, meditate. Just making those simple changes has brought me some calm.
