Is it normal to cry at therapy?

Is it normal for people to cry during therapy, or is it just me?

It is completely normal and it is also healthy! When you cry, it shows that you are feeling emotional safe in the relationship. Our emotions are meant to be expressed. If ignored, they haunt and may develop into long term problems such as healthy conditions. There are no wrong emotions. Once felt, they pass and we are stronger for it.
