A Christmas gift for my therapist.

Dragonfly suncatcher.

I’ve had only four sessions so far with my therapist, but I already feel there is trust building between us. I don’t normally feel comfortable talking about my problems with people I don’t know well but his gentle and quiet (but humorous) manner puts me completely at ease and he also appears to have a high level of empathy. I’ve made a few amazing discoveries about myself in this short time and wanted to give him a special Christmas present to show how much it means, so I made this dragonfly suncatcher today. Dragonflies symbolize change and freedom, and this pendant from Michael’s was just gorgeous.

Also, just from observing the way he has his office decorated (he’s into artsy-craftsy stuff), this looks like the sort of thing that would fit in with his decor.

The colors are much more brilliant than the photographs show. Those are little mirrors strung between the bits of glass, and that seemed appropriate too.

  1. I have been with my therapist for 8 years and I have given him lots of gifts over the years … he really appreciates them …. and it makes me feel good to show how much the work we do is appreciated .. that is a lovely gift you are giving him 🙂 doesn’t matter how long you have been working with him, its the thought behind it that really matters..
