My therapist's old office is my ideal. I don't suppose you can *plan* great natural lighting at a terrific angle, or drapes of a lightweight fabric that cast a natural rosy glow (especially added to the walls with just the right shade of peachy pink). :) Barring that natural attribute, I agree about lamps.

A clock in easy view is good. Optimal seating distance is important. The all important Kleenex, and Falls is right. I hate clutching the dirty Kleenex as I transact the business at the end of session. I always feel guilty about handing him my check.

As I mentioned below, my therapist had several small carefully chosen items that had therapy significance. He dabbles in Jung, I think. So he loves stories and fables, especially Native American, but all sorts. And he chose small items that represent some of his favorite stories or legends. I can't remember them now, of course. But I remember him picking up the small box with the hinged lid or the tiny earthenware pot and telling me a story that somewhat fit the circumstances when I was trying to calm down toward the end of session. Very soothing.

Boy, he made a great mommy.
