Hey there, thanks so much for getting in touch!
It’s completely ok to feel unsure or uncomfortable about your therapist. Your feelings are valid, and it’s important to find someone you feel comfortable opening up to. Therapy is all about building a trusting relationship with your therapist, and if that connection isn’t there, it’s ok to explore other options.
Your mental health journey is about finding what works best for you, and sometimes that means trying out different therapists until you find the right fit.
It’s important to communicate your feelings with your therapist openly and honestly. They are there to support you, and understanding your concerns will help them tailor their approach to better meet your needs. Remember, therapy is a collaborative process, and you have the right to advocate for yourself and your well-being.
