6 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Therapy
Use Your Time - arrive a few minutes early to mentally prepare yourself before entering your session and forget about the clock when you are in the session.
Apply Your Session - in between meetings, apply what you've taken to your life and be mindful; make note of changes you are working on and that you want to make.
Journal - take note of your thoughts and feelings; don't stress about writing a lot, just record your feelings and thoughts as you go - it may help to bring it to your next session.
Be Open and Honest - do not try to censor your feelings or any questions you may have -always express what you are feeling. Don't be afraid to try new things and feel free to speak what's on your mind, even if it does seem off topic.
Be Proactive - your therapist is not here to answer questions for you but rather to guide you to your own answers.
Be Ready for Change - know that in order for therapy to succeed, you may have to make some changes to get there; but don't worry - your therapist is here to help you with these changes.
