Can you relate to this scene? “I feel like my whole life is a lie. I look in the mirror, I don’t like what I see and I don’t even know who I am anymore. I’m bored, I’m cranky. I’m lonely. Here I am paying money to a stranger to hold my hand, put his arm around me, and listen to me vent. How pathetic. Has it really come to this point? At least you pay attention and don’t interrupt me. When can I see you again?”
Since I practice Touch-Relationship Therapy (TRT) from the viewpoint of a heterosexual male that’s a writer, I don’t merely listen to you during a session. I study your face and hang on your every word. The more your story twists, turns, rambles, contradicts and repeats itself, the more I get sucked in to it. The characters, conflicts, betrayals, of your life are interesting to me. TRT sessions with me can be a cross between a therapy session and a heart to heart talk with a best friend. No two sessions are ever exactly the same. The unfiltered honesty that spills out of my clients often times evokes a laughter that originates deep down in their core and confirms to them that they have spoken a buried truth about who they are, what they’ve been trough, and what they desire. Because the sessions are professional cuddling sessions they clients can use touch to punctuate what they say without being concerned that it will be misinterpreted romantically, or suggestively.
MY IDEAL CLIENT PROFILE
I like to work with people that want to use TRT as a means to unlock their artistic creativity, or pursue the deeper aspects of their spirituality. My clients include people from all walks of life and occupations because they have touch needs that they want met professionally and not from an extra-marital relationship.
People that are divorced, separated, or in a relationship where their touch needs are more than their partners. These people are all candidates for a life-changing session with me.
I have found that people have a unique set of needs: they are starved for touch and they appreciate being able to schedule it into their busy day with set beginning and ending times, at a location convenient for them, and without the “baggage” of a traditional, non therapy relationship.
For these clients Touch-Relationship Therapy (TRT) gives them the best of both worlds: all the touch they need, without depleting their energy and focus away from their the rest of their life. They prefer their touch to be “transactional” rather than relational and have the financial capability to afford sessions and accommodations. Most of my clients come from word of mouth referrals from satisfied clients.
