In movies they portray a "phychiatrist" or "therapist" session where the patient lays on a couch. Have you ever actually SEEN a couch in their offices in real life?

Wow! That is what I thought it was there for to but I never thought anyone would actually feel more comfortable laying down and talking.

I've never visited an analyst. My first girlfriend's father earned his living in psychoanalysis. I saw his office in Harley Street, it was too tiny for a couch.

Are you "cat obsessed"? I have mentioned them only a few times, but everyone else seems to want to talk to me about them...... :)

Nope ... But I've sat in a couple chairs in their office, that literally engulfed anyone sitting in it.  I think it was a trap to prevent people from leaving.  LOL

I have never been, but I have seen more shows where the people sit in chairs and talk.

After the accident, the doctors recommended my parents send me to a counselor. The first one had a couch but I didn't stick around her office long enough to use it. She always made me a very mad kid. The second guy was great but he didn't have a couch. I guess the ones that have a couch aren't to be trusted! :D

Hi Y&Y,

Yes...once in college, some authority people got really offended by my claim of stuttering. So they sent me to a psychoanalyst of some kind, and it was fun...I did lie on the couch, and he took me through a wonderful relaxation therapy.

Didn't help my stuttering, but it's kinda like Ancient H described for going to sleep...and that's what I did, right on that couch. (He fired me as his patient...nice guy though...)

yes they have them in real life. When I see my doctor for my med check up there is a couch I sit on and he asked me how everything is going.
