Most people recognize their time in therapy to be beneficial, but notice that it’s uncomfortable sometimes as it involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life and feeling difficult emotions. It is encouraging to remember on these days that our biggest moments of growth come with discomfort. Therapy often leads to improved relationships, solutions to problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress.
For these reasons, I believe that therapists and clients are partners. Therapy is dynamic, calling for an active effort on your part and mine in order for it to be most successful. Because of this, there is no way to predict the exact length of your therapy or to guarantee a specific outcome, though you may start and stop when you desire.
Your experience in therapy may vary depending on the therapeutic relationship fit. This is one reason why a good connection with your therapist is essential. In order to make sure we stay on track towards your goals, it is important to keep an open discussion about our relationship connection and your progress during our work together.
