Embracing Playfulness: Fun Questions to Engage the Inner Child in New Relationships

As a holistic therapist specialising in couples therapy, I understand the importance of nurturing both the serious and playful aspects of a relationship. Engaging the inner child can help couples connect on a deeper level, revealing how open and available they are to fun and spontaneity. It also provides an opportunity to observe how comfortable one might be with letting go and enjoying the moment, which can be very telling about their willingness to be vulnerable and embrace joy. Here are some fun and playful questions designed to help new relationships discover each other’s playful sides and foster a sense of joy and adventure.
