Steps to Successful Therapy
LEFT: Susan Young, therapist
and Clinical Director
You and Your Therapist Are a Team.
Make a Commitment to the Process
Work at it and work together!
Be Truthful with Yourself and Your Therapist
Honesty is essential for the two of you to build a strong, trusting relationship and will help your therapist to better help you.
Break Down the Barriers
Therapy is the place where you should say what you want to say and be who you want to be. Your conversations are confidential
Be Open to Change
Be willing to try the exercises your therapist recommends for you. There is always an important purpose behind them.
Feel Free to Express Your Faith
If you desire to have your faith/spiritual beliefs integrated into your counseling, please tell your therapist. He/she will work within the context of your beliefs without attempting to impose a particular belief system.
