Experiential Therapy

Experiential Therapy is actually a category of many different types of therapy which involve more than simply talking with a therapist. Some examples of Experiential Therapy include equine therapy, art therapy, music therapy, psychodrama, and many others. The use of props, animals, other people, and the environment may be part of Experiential Therapy. Because there are such a wide range of methods that fall into the category of Experiential therapy, a patient’s experience may be very different from another patient’s based on the activity in which they are engaging. Patient may learn to care for a horse, create a piece of art or music, or direct a play based on their own struggles. These various activities have various benefits. Some patients find it difficult to express themselves through conventional talk therapy and find easier routes of expression in Experiential Therapy. Others find that by recreating the past in a new way, such as in a form of artwork, they are able to make self-discoveries that would have been hidden to themselves in traditional talk therapy.
