Our expert says:
believe it or not, blackbird answered this very well ! The shrink is likely to be a pleasant person, interested in you. They should help you to feel comfortable talking about yourself and your problems, and will probably have a series of set questions in the first session, to help them assess the situation and advise properly on the best way of dealing with whatever problems you have. Be frank and open --- being untruthful or trying to hide anything from the shrink would only cheat yourself --- they will maintain confidentiality and understand whatever you need to say ; and will then start work on helping you to understand the nature of your problem(s) and to work together to find solutions for them.
