Counsellors often encourage journaling as a tool for therapy. Journaling can help a person have improved clarity about issues or concerns, freely express themselves, explore thoughts and emotions, and can give a therapist additional insight into a client’s situation. Outside of therapy, journaling can support all of these things and can also help capture what’s happening for a person throughout their life. Getting started with journaling can be challenging for some, so this one is simple; questions are posed in a variety of formats, and you can complete at your leisure. Question and answer type journals are a great way to ease into journaling and see if it’s a fit for you!
