This is a good start.
We are in the process of finding a new MC. My wife is sticking with the old one for IC...and that is fine. The C has some skill...very much helped me in IC sessions.
She just has a passive, how does that make you feel way about her.
We both desire a more in your face, try this, do this sort of approach now.
C are regular people too. Our C had a busy life outside of counseling...always got a feeling she prepared for us about 20 seconds before we sat down...am hoping to find a counselor who is more focused and direct.
Glad you found one.
You are right...it is up to a person to really change...you can have a top shelf counselor and if you are unwilling to really commit to examination and change...it simply wont happen.
Keep us posted!
God be with you.
