What Therapists Wish You Knew About Therapy

Nothing is 'too much' for your therapist

There’s no such thing as oversharing when it comes to therapy. Therapists are trained to listen to and accept any and all information you choose to disclose without judgement. They’ve heard it all and then some, so don’t be afraid of shocking or overwhelming them. Besides, the more information your therapist has, the more likely they are to get to the root of your psychological issues. Therapists want their clients to feel comfortable about sharing their deepest, darkest secrets; after all, their entire jobs are centered around creating treatment plans based on your individual needs.

Whether you engage in odd behavior, have doubts about your progress, or are upset by something your therapist said, tell them. All of these are important issues that need to be addressed, so don’t let fear or embarrassment hold you back from being honest. Open communication, no matter how much you have to say, is a key component of therapy.
