It depends on the nature and severity of your condition and the type of treatment provided. Each person’s experience of psychotherapy will be different, and the time it takes to see an improvement will also vary. Sometimes even slight changes are quite visible, but the majority of clients report feeling better after 3 months of therapy. It takes time for therapy to work because ingrained habits and interpersonal patterns are not quick to change. To benefit from a therapy process, you need to actively engage in the treatment, complete assignments between sessions, and be honest with your counselor when describing symptoms and situations.

First of all, don’t be afraid to talk. Therapy allows you to express your thoughts and emotions without judgment. Say it how you feel it — the more open and honest you are, the more effective the process. You may feel awkward when talking about certain personal subjects, but keep in mind that the therapist is here to support you. You may also write down your symptoms or thoughts that you’d like to discuss so that you won’t forget something important during the session. Reed more.
During the first therapy session, you and your therapist will get to know each other. So they may ask you some questions about your symptoms, medical history, career, relationships, lifestyle, etc. You can ask your therapist about their education, experience, and treatment approaches. The therapist may or may not write something down—it’s a part of the process, and you’re free to ask them any questions.

While being in therapy, it’s really important to be open and sincere. Don’t be afraid to share your thoughts and feelings, therapy is a safe space to discuss them.

Also, try not to assume your therapist’s beliefs and reactions to prevent developing biased opinion. It’s advisable to stay optimistic about the therapu process and don’t stick to the fear that therapy won’t work. This might hold you back from making real profress.
Online therapy is a self-sufficient process of developing healthy coping mechanisms. However, a licensed mental health professional can sometimes do a preliminary screening during online session and determine whether you need an in-person assessment. But this is not a final diagnosis.
