Many people have anxiety surrounding therapy. At Avalon Malibu, we’ve seen how beneficial therapy can be, but we know that it’s not always an easy decision to make. However, it is possible to start overcoming anxiety surrounding therapy. In this blog, we will share some of the things we do at Avalon Malibu to help.
Understanding Anxiety Surrounding Therapy
There are so many reasons individuals can have anxiety surrounding therapy. For some, being vulnerable is scary. Because of this, they avoid starting the therapy process. Therapy pushes someone to open up and challenges them to make changes. Others are afraid to do the hard work that’s often required to achieve better mental health.
It’s essential to understand why someone is struggling with the idea of starting therapy. In some cases, it’s a good idea to enroll in therapy even if a person is having anxiety about it. Someone can bring up that anxiety in their first session and be open with their therapist about how they’re feeling. It’s important to always be open and transparent with one’s therapist so that they can provide them with the best support possible.
