It’s your therapist’s goal to help you make progress in the areas that you’re dealing with. And in order for them to do that, they need you, to be honest with them. This doesn’t imply that you need to pour out every detail of your life, but ensure that the information you are sharing holds true. Trying or lying to misinform your therapist will make it harder for them to help you. It is alright to speak if you feel uncomfortable, but try to be honest. Betterhelp Counseling & Therapy
