The Importance of Honesty in Therapy

The Importance of Honesty in Therapy

Honesty in therapy and the importance is vital for the process to work. The only way to grow is to open up and be honest.

I understand that it is very hard for most to think about opening up to another and trusting the therapeutic process. Why is it important to be honest in therapy? It is scary at first to divulge private and personal information. We are taught to live in a society that teaches us to guard ourselves, to not trust anyone, keep our walls up and to never show weakness. We are told to sweep things under the rug and to not allow ourselves to trust for fear of being hurt. These false belief systems leave us feeling isolated and lonely. Our natural state of being is to love, share intimacy, connect with others on a real soul and spiritual level.

Honesty in Therapy

What is The Goal?

The goal in therapy is to break negative patterns and self talk that no longer serve a purpose. By learning to trust and open up you are able to fully benefit from the therapy session. You will start to see life as less of an attack and in fact not personal. The only person you are responsible for is yourself. When you learn to stand in your truth, there is no need to guard, defend, and act out against our true nature. You soon learn that these false statements our only constructs of what society, parents, etc, have taught us over hundreds of generations. The process of getting honest in therapy has more to do with learning how to be honest with yourself. To see through the layers and the conditioning and taking an assessment of what works and what no longer works.

Honesty in Therapy

Produces Results

When I am with my clients I tell them that the only person it hurts is themselves when they choose to withhold information or “feel me out to see if I can be trusted”. These things are of little importance to me as the therapist. I want to get started uncovering and discovering the real you. The sooner you realize that your not that different from others and that we all live with the same conditioning, you see that the fastest and most direct route to healing is through honesty.
