1. Therapy is very useful. It will hopefully help you sort things out.
2. It's never easy to sit face-to-face with someone and talk about
what's going on. I felt the same way. I started talking about
the little things and my therapist helped me move on to the bigger picture as I got more comfortable.
3. The first visit will be a "getting to know each other" conversation. The therapist will ask a lot of generic questions about
your life, family, etc. A good therapist will pick up on things as you talk and refer back to them later in another meeting.
My therapist always starts off with the "How was your week?" question and that usually starts me off about
something that may be bothering me. Don't expect to be "cured" in one visit. Be optomistic. Remember, it will only work if you believe and want it to.
