There is no need to worry about “getting ready” for the first session or any future sessions. The most important thing for you is to feel comfortable and be yourself, openly discuss the challenges that led you to contact me, and ask me any questions you may have. Remember that our sessions are not for me, but for you: you have hired me to help you have a better life. This requires your interest and open, honest communication for learning and change. The most important thing you can do is to be willing to change, and to talk openly, even when faced with aspects of yourself and your life that you may be less interested in seeing and discussing. So the short answer to the question is: you don’t need to prepare for anything except facing what you are looking for.
