Depends on your therapist and what sort of orientation they follow. But it is pretty similar in general. You go in. You sit. Depending on how talkative you are, you talk and they listen, or they ask you questions and you talk. Then it comes down to what sort of therapist you have. Some will focus on the past and what it means. Some will focus on the present and how to figure stuff out. Some focus on relationships. Some like to do activities and give homework. Some are less structured. It really just depends. I mean you decide whether you want to talk about something. And you can always leave. Or go to another therapist.
I went in my first year at varsity because I couldn't handle the stress. It was a positive experience to me. I went to a young female psycologist who helped me organize my thoughts and make positive changes to my life in order to cope with my current situation. I found it to be a really helpful experience.
that's really good to hear... my mom has been wanting to sign me up because i've had a few problems and haven't really been myself lately. and at first i told her she was crazy if she thought i would go, but now i'm thinking it might not be so bad...
It really helped me a lot. I felt like an idiot going at first, because I kept telling everyone I wasn't mad. But you can be a normal person going through a tough time and it'll really benefit you.
