hi firey, welcome. i am jamie, male and 37. i have been in intense therapy with my psychiatrist-this lasted 4 and a half years. a good therapist gives pertinant responses, albeit moreso in the form of suggestions that create an option for you to explore. me i always did homework om myself to take in; the good bad and ugly of what is going on with me. you are actually in control, thus a therapist will steer the conversation to areas of relevance. some sessions are mundane, sometimes we do not want to talk about something, counselling is talking, it is also emotional, reflective, painful and very reciprocal and understanding at other times. it can be very intense, this usually begins after some time has passed, and once you have dealt with the scary stuff. my suggestion is to work on the bits of most relevance, then work your way down. we are all different, and some techniques serve some better than others. it is best to be brutallly honest, maybe not for you, or anyone else, but i found this to be very carthartic. what you put in is what you get back. hoping this helps. with compassion, jamie
