Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From:

"Be authentic.
Therapy is your opportunity to resist the demands of the formal world and share what you are thinking and feeling. Your therapist is NOT expecting you to "have it all together". Therapy or counseling is an opportunity to learn how your thoughts and feelings, and your responses to both, impact your capacity for tolerating life"s ups and downs. Be open and honest in therapy. Authenticity leads to self-acceptance.
Say anything. Ask anything.
We encourage you to share your happiness AND your disappointments about yourself, others, and even your therapy experience. At times we all struggle with sharing our disappointments and appreciations of people. Yet, learning to share our innermost experiences is critical to becoming whole. We encourage you to let your therapist know how you feel about your sessions if you"re content or disappointed or mixed. Learning how to confront these feelings and share them in a measured but meaningful way can help you learn about yourself and accelerate the growth process.
Consistent, on time attendance works wonders.
The research is clear that therapy works best when attendance is regular and consistent. Inconsistent counseling sessions or frequent late attendance is something to discuss with your therapist we want to support your personal growth it"s our top priority for you. We want to support you in honoring and believing in yourself by making therapy a valued, even sacred space for you. Consider discussing with your therapist practical and personal barriers that might keep you stuck in not putting yourself first."
