Often times when in therapy or in finding treatment from mental illness, individuals discuss how to make the most out of the therapeutic process. They may explain the dynamics of working through this process and tell you that it may not be easy. This advice is helpful and not to be devalued.

It can be wise, however, to go back to the basics of therapy. Being in therapy and finding freedom from the pain in your life is not easy to talk about. In times like this, it is more important to know to talk in therapy than it is to know the dynamics. Talking is key.

In this video I offer some tips on how to prepare yourself for a therapy session where talking is anxiety provoking and what you can do about it.

First, I discuss what can be done days before the appointment.

Next, I explain what can be helpful prior to the appointment: on the way there and while in the waiting room.

Lastly, I give a post-appointment tip and explain the importance of time sensitivity and trust.
