Do you ever feel stuck? Therapy is a process designed to help us resolve issues leading to stress, over-whelming feelings, and relationship problems. It's a journey taken with a professional who can offer insights into personal areas from an outside prospective.
Your therapy session is designed with you in mind. Therapy should be aimed at helping you build resilience and reach your goals set with your therapist. A question you may ask yourself is, "How long will this take?" The answer is within you. Your therapist should "check-in" periodically to see where you are at and how you are progressing. Those "check-ins" help your therapist assess where you are in reaching those specific goals and where you are headed. Therapy what not designed to be forever.
Individual success largely depends on how often you apply the insights and skills gained during session to your daily life. It also depends on your willingness to be active, open, and as honest as possible with your therapist. We can't help you if you can't open during the process.
The first step is always the hardest, but the with a trusted therapist you can find your path.
