I have been in therapy with a clinical psychologist (for stress and long-term anxiety issues) for about 6 months now and it’s been really good for me. If nothing else, it at least gives me the reassurance that I will have an outlet to talk out all my “crazy” at my next appointment. I tried two therapists before finding mine and I find that her style really works for me.
I go to my therapist once a week, and lately some times it feels like I won’t have anything to say when I get in there. This has me thinking a lot about why and how I came to be in therapy, and I have some questions.
Anyone who is now or has been in therapy, can you tell me:
1. Were there ever times you went to a therapy session where you feel like you didn’t need it? Or times when you had nothing to say?
2. How often do you go to therapy?
3. How long have you been in therapy/how long were you in therapy?
4. How do you feel that it has changed you?
Thanks everyone! I’m trying to figure out if maybe I should ask my therapist if I can start coming once per month instead of once per week.
