Tools for Taking an Active Role in Your Therapy

Greater success is usually found when you take an Active Roll in Your Therapy. An Experienced Therapist can teach you the tools that you can utilize during therapy sessions and continue to use after your therapy has ended. Have an open mind and bring these tools to therapy:

  1. Forge a real connection with your therapist.
  2. Speak with your therapist for guidance on what you can do to take a more active role in your recovery.
  3. Look at yourself honestly and without judgment.
  4. Look for change within yourself not coming from others in your life.
  5. Take control of your feelings without allowing them to control you.
  6. Be real with yourself and stop pretending to be something other than your true self.
  7. Pay attention to your self-talk and change the narrative to match the person that you want to be.
  8. Take responsibility for your own side of the street without taking responsibility for those things that are beyond your control.
  9. Continue to work on your therapy when you are outside of your therapy sessions.
  10. View challenges in life as a steppingstone for growth rather than a stumbling block that holds you back.
