with closed eyes...

Posted by twinleaf on September 26, 2010, at 0:41:28

During the most intense times of my therapy, my eyes invariably close. I try to keep them open, sometimes, or apologize to my analyst for not looking at him. But he reassures me that he feels very connected and close to me at those times, and thinks eye-closing has a unique place in therapy. But I didn't know so many other people did it too! Witti described doing it almost all the time, and Vwoolf described doing it right from the start with the therapist she is seeing via skype. I was imagining that, if I were in her position, I might be scanning the screen frantically, trying to get a better feeling of WHO it was that I was talking to. You must have made a wonderful choice of therapist to have jumped right into things so completely. It's so good to know that we can connect so powerfully in that way. I know one person who is finishing an analysis by telephone because she relocated to another state, but she says it does not have a powerful impact, and she much prefers office sessions. I guess the eyes have it, even when closed!
