We have our 1st couples counseling appointment in 2 days. My boyfriend was very reluctant at first, but slowly seems to be coming around to it.
I am wondering what I should except from our sessions? I have done IC, but never CC. I was thinking of going in and telling our story and stating what I think our issues are (and then he could state his issues). I don't want to dominant the session, but my boyfriend is a lot more quiet than me and I think he is going to have a hard time opening up at first. I've written and talked about our story enough I have it down pretty well. So is it okay if I somewhat take the lead at first?
Are there any specific questions I should ask the therapist? Anything else I should think about before my session? I would love some advice from others who have had successful CC or MC.
Thank you so very much! I am probably over thinking it, but I had a bad therapist at first for IC so I want don't want to waste time in CC with a therapist who isn't working for us. I know everyone and every relationship is different though. :)

2014 - I broke up with him and now I am trying to heal.
Hurt me with the truth, but never comfort me with a lie.
