Humour and Therapy

Why do people come for therapy?

Are we allowed to enjoy therapy and find humour in it?

This must be done in safety and respect. This doesn’t mean it must always be solemn and worthy.

I think our ability to laugh and see the funny side of life’s absurdities is a powerful component of our resilience and healing capacity.

Indeed, I believe that humour plays with life’s confusions in an elegant and profound way.
