Why learn Autogenic Therapy with a therapist?
Some people say why do I have to learn autogenic therapy with a therapist, when I have seen it in books and articles in teach yourself form? AT is always put forward as a simple technique, and when taught and coached by a registered therapist it is. The problem with the written word is that is all you have, there is no guide or personal support - no one to help you with queries, or to give you reassurance or back-up when you are in doubt. You need a knowledgeable therapist who will monitor your practice and give you feedback on your progress. Although the technique itself is very easy, the response to training are endlessly varied and unique to you.
