During Your First Session

It is normal to feel anxious. It is never easy to share deep and personal information with another stranger. You may find yourself leaving the session with more questions than answers. This is normal too as these questions will view things from different perspectives, guiding you towards the most suitable answer that fits your values and beliefs.
