List Of Emotions Worksheet

It can sometimes be tough for clients to know what words to use to express what they are feeling. Emotions are complex and can be uncomfortable and overwhelming to talk about without proper guidance and support. When a client struggles to articulate their feelings, it can be helpful to provide a tool to help them identify their emotions.

A list of emotions can help a client identify and claim what they are feeling. It can also help them understand how their emotions interact with each other and affect how they interpret and navigate life’s challenges.
