Getting started


I've done a bit of my own research and have stumbled across a multitude of options.

Ive never done this before.

How did you guys decide you would plunge into therapy? What was the first step you took to start?

I've had social anxiety my whole life. It has eased a lot in the last couple of years, but I'm still having trouble with some things.

I took up meditation and Aromatherapy in the last year and that's helped quite a bit.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Saw my general doctor and they suggested/referred me to someone. Therapy never helped me though, just made me feel more of a label.

My schools offered free* therapy and I knew I really needed to do it. That was like a year after my problems started but better late than never! I actually went up to the door and backed out a couple times before someone from the office opened the door and asked if they could help and from there they got me signed up with everything.

You are entitled to change your therapist if the one you first get doesn't work for you!!

I hope it works out for you I am really happy with my therapist right now.
