So, I would like some feedback from readers.
I work in a profession where people's reactions are a mixed bag. Hypothetically, we would like everyone who comes to therapy to love it with all their hearts and be helped by it. But that doesn't always happen. Some people hate therapy, or at least what their experience in therapy has been. Some people feel ambivalence, even guilt over "needing therapy," even when it worked and was a pleasant experience. I myself have gotten a lot out of therapy when I attended, but my twin sister did not have the same experience.
What about you? If you have attended therapy, what did you think of it. If you chose against therapy at some point in your life, how come?
Your answers will help me better understand what works for people, and with what perceptions my clients are walking into my office.
