One of the things that I like best about writing this blog is having an opportunity to help guide people through the often-complicated process of becoming a therapy client. As therapists, we do this therapy thing every day. For new clients, the process can be daunting and complex, and resistance to figuring the whole thing out can be enough to keep someone out of therapy.
There are plenty of things for clients to think about before, during, and after therapy. How do I find a therapist? What do I talk about in sessions? Are there things I should keep to myself? Does my therapist really care about me? How do I ask for a different kind of treatment? How do I know when I'm done? The list goes on and on.
In an effort to help with these questions, and more, I'm putting together an e-book to share with people who are just starting on their journey as a client, and with current clients who'd like to expand their therapeutic horizons. And I need your help!
I'd love to hear, in comments here or in email (firstname.lastname@example.org), what sorts of questions YOU have about therapy and therapists. I'll incorporate your questions into the book.
Please feel free to share this link so others can contribute, and learn. And I'll be sure to let you know when the book is ready!
