Daisy! I've actually done the "safe place" visual imagery assignment in my therapist's office before! How strange is that???

My safe place (and it is the same as I told him) is my bedroom. Not my bedroom growing up, but my current bedroom. I have a queen size bed, with an antique frame that is black with some sort of design. My bedsheets currenty are navy blue and cotton t-shirt. I use 2 pillows, sometimes 3. I have My sheet, a navy blanket and a quilt that my boyfriend's great grandmother made. It's pink and blue and yellow and FABULOUS!!! My boyfriend in snuggled next to me and my therapist is sitting in the corner where I have a section for reading with a table, bookshelf, and lamp. I also have navy curtains, so he can't read, as no lights are allowe either. He jsut has to sit there and watch over me.

It's safe because I can leave the door open with a light on in the wallway if I need to. It's also safe because I can pull the covers over my head and forget the day ever happened :) And my bed is so comfortable...


I'd love to say I don't feel safe in my therapist's office, as I'm kinda mad at him.. But i'd be a big fat liar! Ifeel SOOOO safe there. Every time I walk in, I have to move the chair, as the previous client movedit a bit. Last session, he moved it for me. that was sweet of him to do. I feel safe because nothing bad is going to happen. And if it does, then it WILL be resolved. *It's not like real life, where feelings get hurt and no one talks about it. I can say, "listen jerk, you hurt my feelings!" And not worry about the backlash. I know that everything that happens in that office will be resolved. That he's not going to hurt me. That I can be honest. That he's also going to be honest, but it's in my best interest. I feel so safe in that office. Can I live there???
