2) To connect the dots between therapy sessions

As discussed above, as you write about a particular topic, you’ll inevitably recall information, which you might have learnt during therapy sessions.
Therefore, allowing you to connect the dots between the topic you are writing about, and that, which you have learnt.
As a result, supporting you in embedding even more new synaptic connections in your brain, to the ones, which, you are already embedding through engaging in the therapy process.
Consequently, supporting you in cementing the learning and understanding, you are gaining during therapy sessions.
At times also, during the writing process, you might connect certain dots between certain topics brought up in your therapy sessions, which you didn’t necessarily fully understand at the time.
Or you hadn’t been able to connect previously.
However, through the writing process, have been able to finally realize what your therapist might have been referring to, in one or more particular sessions.
And connect the dots you hadn’t connected before.
Therefore, again, further helping you to cement the learning and understanding gained during therapy sessions, and developing those synaptic connections in your brain even further.
