Personal experiences of counselling and psychotherapy

What's it like?

I always wondered what psychotherapy would be like. Would I lie on a couch? (No). Would I cry? (Yes, sometimes). Would I feel stupid? (No). Would I feel better? (Yes, but not straight away). The best thing about it is that you can say anything, and talk about whatever you want, and you never feel judged in the slightest – only supported. It’s like there’s someone there who’s rooting for you and won’t give up on you. It’s almost like a form of unconditional love.
