Default Re: Lying to your therapist

I don't have an experience with this. But if a person is a therapist, maybe she will be more understanding of complex human emotions and behaviors? If you want your therapy to work, it's best to be honest with her and tell her the truth as soon as possible. You can explain to her why you lied. Were you afraid of being judged? Were you ashamed about something and wanted it to conceal it?

And from now on, tell her the truth. If she doesn't know the whole story, she cannot help you fully.
