In order for therapy to be successful, we recommend the following guidelines: 1. Bring all of your emotions into your sessions. Your tears, your anger, your fear, your shame, and your joy. Do your best to not hold back.
2. Try to keep the focus on yourself. It certainly feels good to be able to blow off steam about what others have done wrong, however its best to keep the focus on how it made you feel. 3. Be very curious about why you are the way you are, and don’t judge yourself for what you find out.
4. Use your challenges—even the small ones—as opportunities for growth. Once you know what your triggers are, welcome these situations as opportunities to respond differently. 5. Be committed to the process. Therapy is not a one-off fix, it requires several sessions for you to feel the impact and start seeing results.
