Ideally therapy is a two person process. When you have made the big decision to undergo counselling your therapist should allow you to feel comfortable with bringing your personal material to the room even if you don’t initially understand what that personal material is actually all about.
This is Matt Cahills topic for his Downtown Therapy blog. He discusses the fact that there is often a strong urge to share and talk about our feelings when in therapy however the thing you want to talk about is less clear. Matt writes: “We can only partially describe what’s on our mind – in fact, it may not involve the mind at all, but emotions that seem detached from thoughts.”
