A therapist is a professional who is trained to listen, and help you better understand yourself and your relationships with other people. Whether you’re meeting virtually or in an office, your time with a therapist is private and protected.
Working with a therapist is about building a relationship based on trust and fit. They’ll offer insights into obstacles you are facing, how to overcome them and achieve your goals. Their long term aim will be for you to recognize your patterns on your own, and develop skills to manage your mental wellbeing for a more fulfilling life.
Therapy is about working with a professional who can provide insight into challenges and obstacles you’re facing, and guidance to help you navigate your feelings, thought processes, and your behaviours.
Once you’ve decided to meet with a therapist for your first session, you might be wondering what it’ll be like. Many people start therapy because something feels off, but they can’t put their finger on it; some have a clearer picture of what they want to work on.
