If you’ve never been to a therapist before, you might feel intimidated at first. You might feel nervous, uncomfortable, or scared. Some people believe that a therapist is going to judge them, or worse, be able to see just how bad everything really is. Yet, those fears typically melt away when a person begins to get know their therapist. Therapists are compassionate mental health professionals, who are listening and responding to you. In fact, they are often following your lead and doing their best to create emotional safety and trust. Many therapists will ask more questions in the beginning to get to know more about what you’re going through. They are there to provide support, kindness, and help you see what’s going well and what your strengths are.
