What we covered

Are you considering therapy, currently in therapy, or perhaps even a mental health professional? The journey of therapy can be a challenging and transformative experience, and it's perfectly normal to have concerns and reservations about the process. At October, we recognize the importance of fostering understanding and support around therapy. That's why we are excited to invite you to our upcoming Forest session, Understanding the Therapy Journey, where you can join a safe and open space to discuss personal experiences, concerns, and reservations related to therapy.

The Therapy Journey: What to Expect

Entering therapy can feel overwhelming, especially if it's your first time. It's important to remember that the therapy journey is unique to each individual, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. During our Forest session, we will explore the various stages of the therapy journey, including:

  • Getting Started: Understanding the process of finding the right therapist and beginning your therapeutic relationship.

  • Navigating Emotions: Exploring the range of emotions that may arise during therapy and learning how to manage and process them effectively.

  • Building Trust: Developing trust and open communication with your therapist is crucial for a successful therapeutic journey.

  • Setting Goals: In therapy, it's important to establish clear goals and intentions to guide your progress and growth.

Overcoming Reservations and Concerns

It's common to have reservations and concerns about therapy, especially if it's new to you. These concerns include:

  • Stigma: Overcoming the stigma attached to seeking help for mental health challenges.

  • Vulnerability: Navigating feelings of vulnerability and opening up in a therapeutic setting.

  • Effectiveness: Understanding the potential benefits of therapy and addressing doubts about its effectiveness.

Finding Support and Understanding

Therapy can provide a valuable opportunity for self-exploration and growth, but it's essential to have a supportive environment. Our Understanding the Therapy Journey session aims to create a space for participants to:

  • Share Experiences: Connect with others who have navigated the therapy journey and gain insights from their experiences.

  • Receive Support: Seek support and validation for your concerns and reservations about therapy.

  • Gain Understanding: Develop a deeper understanding of the therapeutic process and the benefits it can bring.
