what do i do if i feel like my therapist isn’t helping me. how are they supposed to be helping me? all they do is ask about how things are and then we just awkwardly sit there for 30 minutes. i need a change since i am in a down spiral.

      Therapy sessions should flow well and not feel awkward, you just need a different therapist that you can vibe with

      Don’t ever feel bad about breaking up with your therapist. Sometimes two people just aren’t a good fit. Comfort and trust with a therapist is so important.

      Therapeutic alliance is extremely important. I would search for someone new.

      i agree with what the others said maybe just say it feels kinda awkward and you don’t know how to start - idk that’s what i did bc i was the same way for my first few sessions then i was just like idk where to start and then she was like just anywhere so i started at the beginning

      i'd def recommend talking with your therapist about it and/or getting a new therapist. i'm sorry that you have to deal with that - it's so weird to me that some therapists will let sessions be so directionless.
