I have learned throughout the years of my professional career that there are many false beliefs as to what to expect from therapy or therapists. It is no surprise that these beliefexist when you consider that he majority of people get their information from the media or the web. The medias’ renditions of how therapy is conducted and what to expect from a therapist could not be further from the truth. Such films and t.v. shows as What About Bob, Web Therapy, or the Prince of Tides help to set the standard for our beliefs on therapy. It is my hope that after reading this, you may have a somewhat different view on what to expect from your therapist and what to expect out of your therapy sessions.
