The physical spaces in which we conduct psychotherapy are an important yet under acknowledged aspect of psycho therapeutic work. Although a few contemporary publications have provided suggestions for the creation of welcoming, comfortable, and efficient practice spaces, considerations of what it means to transform a room into a therapeutic space have remained largely absent from recent literature. This paper reviews the existing literature on this subject and describes the ways in which the therapist’s office is intimately tied to several process of the therapy itself, by way of creating an adaptive environment that is able to meet the needs of both therapist and client over the course of their work together.
