There are many clients that I work with throughout the week that have a hard time expressing themselves. Even everyday conversation such as greetings, questions, and answers can be a very difficult task for some. In a regular conversation people usually say "Hello" and "How are you?" Then you proceed to ask further questions and give answers to keep the conversation going. And when it comes to questions like "How are you feeling" or "How was your day", you have to be in tune with your own feelings and emotions.
I wrote a song called "What am I Trying to Say" to focus on the workings of a conversation and expressing feelings. Within the song I go over some of the feelings a person can have. And when I use this song, I plan to use visuals for such feelings. I will make several laminated cards such as angry, sad, happy, sick, or tired and hold them up for the client to choose.
And here are is the free chord chart that you can download as well:
