WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I RUN OUT OF THINGS TO SAY IN THERAPY?
It's not uncommon for therapy clients to hit a wall at some point in their sessions. They may feel like they've talked about everything there is to talk about, or they may feel like they're not making progress. It's important to remember that this is a normal part of the therapeutic process, and there are ways to work through it.
One thing to consider is that deeper issues or underlying feelings may still need to be addressed.
It can be helpful to take a step back and reflect on what's really going on beneath the surface. Ask yourself, "What am I feeling right now?" or "What do I really want to talk about?"
It's also important to communicate with your therapist about your feelings. Let them know if you need help with what to talk about. They may have suggestions for topics to explore or techniques to help you get unstuck.
Remember, therapy is a collaborative process, and your therapist is there to support you.
Finally, it's okay to take a break from therapy if you need it. Sometimes a hiatus can give you time to reflect and come back with a fresh perspective. Just make sure to communicate with your therapist about your plans and discuss when you plan to return.
