therapy session, Music to ground us

Hi. Its lisa. I am 17. I am one of Emilys insiders.

We had a really great therapy session this morning. Guess what we did?

I was feeling really depressed. And I was having awful flashbacks. And I just felt awful.

Eileen said we could do something fun. She asked me what I enjoyed. I had no clue. Then I thought of music, I love music.

So she got her phone and she put on spotify. And we listened to music together. She showed me songs that she likes, and I showed her songs that I like. It was so much fun.

She showed me a john legend song and a bruno mars song that she loves. I couldnt believe she likes up to date pop music. That was so cool.

I got her to play this is me from the greatest showman, and there’s nothing holding me back by sean mendez, and a thousand miles by vanessa carlton, and happy by farrell williams.

We talked all about music and how i felt listening to it. And it was so cool. It made me feel better in no time at all. I calmed right down and the memories lessened.

Eileen is so creative, in how she does therapy. I love that about her.

She always makes our sessions so interesting. Plus now that we’ve done that, I can use the music to feel connectd to her. I can play the songs we played when I am feeling bad.

Like I felt at 5 AM this morning, and I had nobody to call. Now I have music to listen to. yay.

  1. Wow, what a cool way to do therapy, that sounds brilliant, Lisa! I think that music is one of the best thing to feel connected to someone, plus it’s so therapeutic, so I think that’s really awesome and that you know now what sort of music she likes.
