What is expected of me (you) in the sessions?

While it might be nice if we could “read minds” we cannot.  We need you to talk and to talk opening and honestly in your sessions in order for therapy to be successful.  This may take a while if you are the quiet or “shy” type of person.  Give yourself time to get to know your therapist and get used to hearing your own voice.  You have to be humble, open, honest and willing to try new ways of thinking and communicating for therapy to be successful.

It is also important that your efforts to change are not limited to the therapist’s office.  You will sometimes have “homework” that you and your therapist decide you should do between visits.  Be willing to work with your therapist and be willing to risk making changes and you should see your life improve.
