"I don't want to dredge up those old memories"
Sometimes it can be difficult for therapists to motivate patients to participate in Imagery Rescripting because they don't see the point in digging into the past.
The therapist often hears from patients that they have no childhood memories or do not want to reveal them.
"I have no memories of my childhood"
