A therapy or counseling session can be especially beneficial to any individual, but despite knowing these benefits, why does it seem like getting one is challenging?
There can be many reasons for this, and one we hope to discuss is something both sides can manage— the person’s confidence about getting into the session.
Confidence or feeling ready for Mental Health Counseling in New York can be challenging to achieve. Without feeling prepared, the person may choose to bail on their appointment or never make one in the first place. Unfortunately, this sets them off in a self-damaging process of losing their chances of getting heard and receiving help.
With the right support and commitment, you can feel more confident about your next counseling session. Here are some power moves to prepare you.
- Recognize that your decision is not easy, and be proud of your choice.
- Allocate time to self-reflect before and after the session.
- Remember your dreams, goals, and objectives and share these with your counselor.
- Be comfortable about opening up and becoming vulnerable.
- Manage expectations and avoid overthinking about how they should be.
