47 Therapist Office Decors We Adore: 2023 Edition

Your private practice therapy office is a place of transformation. In this space, clients will lose themselves in introspection, learn about themselves through reflection, celebrate their progress with elation, and more. Your therapy office is a place of tears, but also joy. It’s more than just an office, it’s a physical representation of the healing space you hold for clients.

When clients arrive at your therapy office, what they see will make an impression. To ensure that this impression is one of professionalism, openness, and safety, pick decor that speaks to your therapy style. You might also pick decor that shows your personality, allowing clients a glimpse into who you are.

Whether you use leafy plants as a symbol of growth or paint with cool colors to promote feelings of calm, you’re in good company with other Zencare therapists who strive to provide clients with an intentionally-designed space for therapy. Looking for inspiration? We're excited to showcase some amazing office spaces through our professional therapist photography so you can make your therapy office a great place for your clients.

Pops of Color

Pops of color keep the eye moving throughout the room. They tend to immediately attract attention, and can be a fun way to spruce up a space. These accent pieces can be chairs, throw pillows, or artwork that break with the main color theme of the room. Pick a color that you love - most likely, anyone who enters your therapy office will notice it, so be sure that it’s a color that brings you joy!

Gorgeous Greenery

What captures the essence of “nurture” more than plants? Whether your plants are of the leafy variety and cascade down your bookshelf or if they’re a tray of adorable succulents, greenery is a great way to bring a sense of livelihood to your space. Plants can be a great metaphor for any number of therapy-related concepts, so keeping some around not only helps make your point but also can promote feelings of relaxation and creativity. There’s a lot to say about how effective nature therapy can be!

Artwork can express meaning that words cannot.

Who says beige is boring?

Neutral colors, including beige and other shades of white, bring a sense of cohesion and synchrony to any room. As most of the work done in therapy happens within the mind and conversation, having a calm room draws the attention inwards. Neutral colors  are also the perfect background for any accents or decor.

Eye-catching area rugs

Rugs center a room, drawing the eye towards the middle of the room. This can be especially helpful when used in a therapy office, where most of the conversation will happen in the space between your chair and your clients’ seat. Rugs can also add color to a room and draw the eye downwards, which can be a welcome focal point during vulnerable conversations.

Rooms with a view

Windows not only let in warm sunlight, but they also offer you and your clients a glimpse into the world outside of your therapy office. By offering your clients views of nature, even if it’s just the leaves of a nearby tree, you can help promote feelings of relaxation and reduce stress. Cityscapes are also a great backdrop for the work that you’re doing in therapy, gently reminding your client that what they learn in therapy can be taken with them out into the wider world.
