When we end up in a really good conversation with a friend, we sometimes pay them a slightly unusual but sincere compliment: we say that chatting to them feels like talking to a good therapist.
What we tend to mean is that they’re giving us space to talk, they’re not interrupting us or pushing their own advice aggressively forward: they’re properly listening.
This Therapy Game by The School of Life cannot turn us into real therapists (that would take years of training). But like many good games (ones about flying or being a detective for example), it gives us a chance to try out, entertainingly but safely, one of the most interesting sides of a great profession. The Therapy Game offers us a rare opportunity to listen and speak to one another at truly fulfilling length and depth.
The cards cover five categories:
Questions cover topics such as:
- Who do you need to impress?
- What did you learn about relationships from your parents?
- If you were a friend of yours, what would you tell yourself about the challenges you face?
- Around what features of your character does your self-hatred focus?
