Next Session Worksheet/After a while

Next Session Worksheet/After a while

  1. Review all previous worksheets and take note of any changes.

  1. If my needs/themes are the same as previous sessions:
    • Have I already dissected the issue to have a general understanding of why I am stuck?
    • Have I used all my tools and done everything suggested between my sessions to help myself move forward?
    • Have I been honest with myself about what I may not be ready to do and honor that I may simply need more time to be in my experience just as it is (at least for now)?

  1. If there are no major crises and there are no further changes I am ready to make between sessions, what am I getting out of therapy that is different than what I can get from a loved one/friend or self-work?

CONNECTION: Have I tried to cultivate the level of transparency, depth, and safe space in my conversations with my support system, like I have with Jes?

      • Next step: Expand my search for connections and spaces that have similar energy as my therapy.
      • Next step: Consider con-joint counseling at this point with a partner, parent/sibling/adult child, friend, colleague, etc.

VALIDATION: Do I need to work on trusting myself more?

      • Next step: Space out my appointments to practice building my internal muscles and/or to wait until I actually need an appointment.

SELF CARE: Do I need to transfer my energy/time/money that I’ve been putting into therapy appointments into appointments with myself?

      • Next step: Set a date for self-care that is either calming, devoted to a project/task, a joy, etc
