Experiential therapy is a treatment approach that uses expressive tools and activities, like role-playing or acting, props, arts and crafts, music, caring for animals, mental imagery, or different types of recreation, to re-enact and re-experience emotional situations from previous and current relationships.
Through the experience, one learns to recognize the emotions connected to success, disappointment, responsibility, and self-esteem.
It helps participants to release and explore unfavorable emotions such as anger, hurt, or humiliation about earlier experiences that may have been suppressed or are still present under the supervision of a qualified experiential therapist.

Individuals participating in music therapy may find it easier to express complicated feelings and communicate more effectively. When people express their emotions through beats, rhythms, or lyrics, they can understand their feelings and find relaxation. Music therapy may benefit people who struggle with eating disorders, trauma, or mood disorders.
Another method that assists people in using practical methods to address the issues at hand is adventure therapy. There are several specific ways that people can participate in adventure therapy, including motorcycling and rock climbing. In-the-moment problem-solving and stress management is made possible by adventure therapy.
Through the use of guided imagery, a patient can be taken through a certain setting or be assisted in visualizing events that trigger certain feelings.
The goal of dance and physical activity therapy is to help patients express their feelings via movement.
Through role-playing, the psychodrama method aids people in reclaiming their emotions from prior experiences. They are inspired to recreate painful memories and eventually move past them, gaining more effective coping mechanisms for challenging feelings. This is extremely beneficial for people who struggle with PTSD, addiction, or phobias.
When a person has little control over a situation, they may feel like they have control over their surroundings by creating art, which will enable them to convey their feelings. People with chronic pain, tension, anxiety, and depression may benefit from art therapy.
