“It Gets Worse Before It Gets Better.” I Don’t Think So.

I recently read a post on a mental health blog which said ‚ÄúTalking therapy is great, but things get worse before they get better, so you have to stick with it.” This is a misguided over-generalisation that can do harm.

If one of my clients feels worse at the end of the session, then it is not the end of the session.
