Therapy is an investment in yourself, so get everything you can out of it. Your therapist is working outside of session to do their part in preparation for your session, but what can you be doing? This article addresses that which is in YOUR control.
The more you follow the above steps, the more seriously both you and your therapist will take your goals. Don’t make the common mistake of thinking that just showing up to session is enough to grow; you have to put in the work. Make your sessions a sacred space in your week, work hard, and watch your life flourish.
