Starting Therapy? Here's What to Expect

Starting Therapy? Here's What to Expect

Starting therapy can be a daunting experience, especially if you're not sure what to talk about. It's completely normal to feel unsure of where to begin, but the good news is that your therapist is there to help guide the conversation and address any concerns you may have.


Here are some ideas for things you could discuss with your therapist:

  1. Your current feelings and emotions: It's important to be honest with your therapist about how you're feeling. This could include talking about things that are causing you stress, anxiety, or depression.

  2. Your relationships: Your relationships with others can have a big impact on your mental health. Talk to your therapist about any issues you may be having with friends, family, or romantic partners.

  3. Your past experiences: Your therapist may ask you about your past experiences, including any traumas or difficult events you may have gone through. It's important to be open and honest about these experiences, as they can have a big impact on your current mental health.

  4. Your goals and aspirations: Therapy can be a great place to talk about what you want out of life and how to achieve your goals. Discuss your dreams and aspirations with your therapist and work together to come up with a plan to help you achieve them.

  5. Your daily habits and self-care: It's important to take care of yourself, both physically and mentally. Talk to your therapist about your daily habits and self-care routines and get ideas for ways you can improve them.

Remember, the most important thing is to be open and honest with your therapist. They are there to help you and will work with you to address any concerns you may have.
