What Your Therapist Actually Thinks of You

One of the main reasons people tend to avoid going to therapy is out of fear of being judged by their therapist. And I get it. No one wants to go into a stranger’s office and open up about their deepest, darkest thoughts and feelings. It’s scary, uncomfortable, and our initial instinct is to protect ourselves. The problem is that instinct to protect ourselves by avoiding therapy can actually be quite counterproductive, as holding things in and avoiding dealing with them could potentially cause more angst and strife.
