Judgment in Therapy: The Big Worry for Prospective Clients

Therapy is one of the most common environments where people are terrified of being judged negatively. It’s natural to worry when you’re revealing your fears, trauma and secrets.

Nonetheless, therapists are trained to refrain from judging clients in a way that is not productive or unnecessarily hurtful.

Therapist and professor Nikki Martinez teaches courses where she helps therapists in training learn to manage their instinct to judge (they are human, after all).

Therapists cannot be effective until they own their biases and prejudices, Martinez told Talkspace, but this should not change the experience of therapy.
