Keeping Your Appointment with Therapy – and What Happens While You Wait.

Time for your appointment.
(You can think about it all week, you can avoid it, you can remember…)

You can wait by the door, settle in, or avoid the waiting room like the plague…


You can watch the clock, pace, or read…

You can get there just on time, always early, or usually late…

You can run in, stroll in, or not come at all…

You can compose a list, kick yourself for not doing your homework, or wing it…

You can try to focus, avoid looking up, let your mind drift…

You can hide in the bathroom, compose yourself, open the door with your cell to your ear…

You can make small talk, look at your notes, or look at her legs…

You can try to remember where you were last time, cut to the chase, or feel what you’re feeling…

So exactly when does your therapy session begin?

  1. When I’ve been waiting for my therapy appointment, I feel so aware of the minutes — seconds — passing!! Not sure if it was because I couldn’t wait to get in there or if I was feeling anxiety of the anticipation of it!
