Before I started studying at the university and long before I started my own psychotherapeutic practice, I sincerely believed that psychotherapists and psychologists are specialists who know "how to live properly." I believed that the more I described my life situation, the more accurately and in detail I would receive instructions from a psychologist on what to do to change my life for the better. At the same time, I hoped she/he would definitely give me the right amount of support and compassion, as well as some tools, as a result of which I will get a huge amount of insights about myself in one meeting. And then magical changes will happen in my life very quickly.
Today, as a psychotherapist and a client with many years of experience, I can confidently say that there will be no quick and magical changes: everyone goes their own way and at their own pace. There will be insights, but they depend not so much on the skill of the psychotherapist as on the readiness of the client's psyche. And this is good. After all, even if someone "takes you by the hand" and takes you to the "wonderful far" with a repertoire of all possible psychological means of support, you are unlikely to feel happy just because there, in the "magic far", you can not get up and rely entirely on yourself.
