- Find the right therapist
Abundant research shows that the most important factor for a successful outcome in therapy is the relationship between you and your therapist.
- Be Honest
Keeping secrets from your therapist prolongs and unnecessarily complicates the therapy process. Opening those thoughts and feelings for discussion with your therapist could lead to a breakthrough.
- Show up. Consistently.
Now that you've made a commitment towards therapy, show up as fully as you can. When therapy feels challenging, it can be easy to check out mentally, show up late, or find excuses to skip sessions. A better approach is to open a discussion with your therapist about these feelings.
