How to Prepare for a Therapy Session and Get the Most out of Your Sessions

  • Some people like to bring some notes or a notepad to write down key points they would like to remember, either to discuss in session or to help them remember what was discussed.

  • Consider the reasons you would like to come to therapy.  What are the key issues? What goals do you have for therapy?  

  • Be willing to consider contributing factors to the problem, including your own participation in the problem.  Be willing to actively participate in being part of the solution. 

  • Be open to new perspectives. Consider trying new things and habit change. 

  • Consider giving yourself time to process what was discussed between sessions.  The real change happens outside of the therapy room.  

  • Remember change is a process, not a singular outcome.
