I find myself venting about negative stuff for the full hour. I have good rapport with my therapist and it’s nice to talk about stuff I wouldn’t share elsewhere.

But I leave feeling DRAINED and also like, I must be lying to him or exaggerating somehow without trying to because things aren’t that bad. Or am I just afraid to accept reality?

Either way I always need a latte after. Today i took a latte with me and I’m still about to fall asleep.

Hi
I don't think anyone can do therapy wrong - your therapist will lead you when he feels the time is right. He must think that venting is what you need right now and its down to him to guide you. Therapy is incredibly draining. Its important you look after yourself before and afterwards. Try to get a good nights sleep the night before and eat well before your appointment. Treat yourself afterwards, look after yourself like you would a friend. Its really hard but it will help.
