Has anyone had any experiences with it? What happens during an average session? Sorry I'm worrying about it and need people's stories about it :o

CBT (much easier to type :) ) is not the kind of thing where they keep on making you re-live things from the past. Instead, they are very practical, helping you to make use of your own present thoughts and present feelings to allow you to decide what to do. The point of CBT is that you end up in better harmony with yourself, if I can put it that way - that your feelings and actions and thoughts all work together instead of pulling apart.

So they don't make you remember stuff you're trying to block out? :o

Do you think you'll be able to do all the things you need to do in the future, while also continuing your effort to block out whatever the stuff is?

No, the therapist won't make you do anything. He or she will be there to help
you by asking questions and helping you reframe the way you think about
things now as opposed to in the past. That was then and this is now and you
don't have to stay stuck in the past.
