  • To all the therapists I've seen before. I've been going to therapy for nearly two years now and it's something I'll always prioritize. I'm so happy with the therapist I have now HOWEVER it took me a long time to find the right one. In this video I chat about all the therapists I've seen and explain what I didn't like and what I learned. Hopefully this video can help anyone who's searching for a therapist and encourages you to not give up. ------------------------------------------ 💎 Subscribe and become a Jem today: http://bit.ly/2iLayjY 💎 ------------------------------------------ ➫ Shop my clothing line Eggie: http://eggie.us ------------------------------------------ ➫ Instagram: http://instagram.com/imjennim ➫ Twitter: http://twitter.com/imjennim ➫ Facebook: http://facebook.com/imjennim ➫ Spotify: http://bit.ly/2rctq05 ➫ Snapchat: http://snapchat.com/add/jennimsnaps ------------------------------------------ ❐ MUSIC ❏ ➫ DJ Grumble's Soundcloud: http://bit.ly/1ElnUag ➫ DJ Grumble's Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2s5bRD7 ------------------------------------------ FTC: This video is NOT sponsored.

    as a somali-canadian whose parents immigrated from a country where they were respected and had prestige because of war, i would flip out if someone said the solution to my problem was "cutting them off" what a lazy inconsiderate response

    Please share more about your therapy experiences and practices you've learned that really dug deep and helped you reflect. I've been searching for the best therapist for a few months now and it's been hard. It'd be nice to get some tips on things that really helped you get through dark thoughts. Thank you, I love your videos queen! <3

    A tip i can give to anyone shopping for therapist. Ask them what is their plan/coping methods regarding your issues. Tell them what you want to work on and ask them how they have worked with past clients, whats their successes, what do you require from me and tell them what you want from them. Let them know what you are not open to new age therapy ,meds ect. It might feel every buisness like but this is your life and you gotta stand up for your right to wellness. Good luck to anyone on their endeavors for searching for a therapist.

    My best friend and I know that we should get therapy as we both have A LOT of issues to talk about. But we both find it really difficult to make the first step and call some random therapist and just try it out. Idk... still, Jenn, this video helped me a lot and I have a better understanding know of what I should expect from therapy. Thank you! And please do more mental health videos (if you want to) because I'm sure that I'm not the only one who finds them helpful. Love from Germany xx

    My second therapist was a man and I was talking about how insecure I am and how it's been a massive issue for me for as long as I can remember and he turned around to me and said "well judging by the way you dress you don't have a problem with confidence" I was like WHAAAAT?! I gave him another chance after that but I just always felt uncomfortable around him after that 😫😫😫

    I finally decided I needed a therapist for myself but I was scared to actually do it because I had literally no idea what to look for, and I knew no one who had any experiences with therapists, so I didn't know where to start. This video was super helpful (and the timing perfect as always) and now I actually feel ready and prepared to start the process! Thank you so much Jenn!

    I had sophrology sessions and they were super helpful! It’s faster than therapy and it teaches you how to handle anxiety, lack if energy or whatever your problem might be.

    Thank you so much for sharing Jenn - I thought I was the only one going through some of these experiences but it's comforting to know that I'm not alone. I don't have a lot of Asian friends and sometimes non-Asians don't understand the importance I place on family and my commitment to them. You beautifully articulated my feelings and I now have a better understanding of my values.

    Hi Jenn,I'm a mental health therapist and I'm glad you did a video on your experience. I'm sorry you had to experience all those things with your second therapist. That was definitely not a person-center response or person center focus. It's also not a culturally sensitive response either. I'm so glad you didn't give up after the first couple and have found the perfect therapist for you!

    This was one of your best videos Jenn. Thank you so much for sharing this and being vulnerable with us. I recently broke up with my very first therapist, who I'd been seeing for about seven months. She was extremely helpful for a while, but over time I realized there were a few red flags that just didn't feel right to me. One of them was very similar to yours -- the fact that she wasn't Asian American and didn't really understand eastern culture, immigrant families, etc. It was really difficult to "break up" with her because, like you said, it takes a lot of time and emotional energy to build that relationship with a therapist in the first place. But I'm really happy that I did it and I can't wait to find a therapist that fits me best. Sending so much love your way! <3

    I’m actually thinking about therapy because I’m at an age where I’m not too far off from having kids, and I want to become a healthier person with self love and techniques to deal with anxiety. I’ve dealt with anxiety since I was a child, and I’m ready to stop letting it get the best of me! I love this video because so many of my friends give up after the first bad or incompatible therapist that they encounter. Anyway, I wish you luck! Also, where did you buy that precious sweater?

    I have been struggling with the process of trying to find my perfect therapist for the past 7 months. This video is very comforting to see I am not the only one that needs to try multiple therapists before finding the perfect one. I thought because I didn’t click with the first one that I was beyond help and told myself therapy wouldn’t work for me. BUT and I am learning mental illness is something that takes an immense amount of work and self reflection. I will keep on keepin on as best as I can. I deeply appreciate all of your personal content and would love to hear anything you are open to sharing about your mental health journey.
    Thank you again love you! 💕

    Thank you so much for this video. I loved it from 2 different perspectives. Firstly as a Chinese British gal who also struggled with some of my previous counsellors but have been seeing the same brilliant person for 18 months now and have learned and grown so much as a result. My counsellor is actually a white man but never assumes he knows what my experience of race and/or gender is like and actively checks in and learns from me at points, which validates my experience and makes me feel safe in that I never think he's gonna jump to conclusions or minimise my experiences of those things.
    I also loved it as someone who's training to be a counsellor. I'm so glad you've found someone who works so well for you and watching this video was so interesting and helpful in reinforcing my learning so far. Thank you.
    Also, huge kudos to you for working so hard and investing in your mental health! As you say, you have to be ready to change and I'm so impressed by your want to and all the work you've put in. It made me give myself a pat on the back too for all the progress I've made, so thanks! xxx

    Im a little late in my reaction but im from a third world asian country. And we're a lower middle class family. There are some parents that treat their kids like their insurance policy. Some, like mine, spent all their money for private school. Both my parents dont have social security or health insurance. It is a very conflicting feeling to have. I feel suffocated and proud at the same time. I did it. I can now provide. But is this my life? Is this my role?

    I love books but the fact that I cant buy a bookshelf because I still live with my parents and they dont have space for it in our home really drives home the emotional strain. Imagine something so basic and unattainable. I could live on my own but who would handle their bills? Can I pay two sets of bills and buy my own house while buying one for them? Is that my life?

    -im just pointing out that this isnt a simple issue. Its not black and white. I wish people understood that.

    I really enjoyed this video and found it helpful. Like you, I did some therapy and did not find it helpful when seeing a therapist that I didn't click with. This content is definitely different from your usual stuff, but it was good.

    I totally understand about needing a therapist who is the same ethnicity you. I've been seeing my first therapist for a couple months now, and she and I are both Asian. I feel like it helps a lot because I also disclose things about my relationship with my parents and how our culture influences it, and my therapist has said things that indicate a certain empathy because of our shared ethnic backgrounds. It makes me feel seen and validated.

    Of course pls make another mental health videos! Pls share with us some of tips from ur experiences with mental health! In my country Indonesia, mental health is stil considered not as important as physical health. And it's quite hard searching for therapist. I once did go to a psychiatrist and she fed me drugs which make my anxiety kind of detained? But it makes me not what I actually am; it was really hard for me to make decisions, even the simplest ones. Until my parents & I decided to stop all the medications and it was a huge struggle. Now I am having sessions with a hypnotherapist, slow progress but hopefully will work on me. Thanks Jenn for sharing! Looking forward for another mental health related videos!

    More videos on mental health! I saw a clinician and psychologist for a year before finding 'the one.' So right about it being a process but its so worth it. Those on the look out- don't give up!!

    I did hesitate to click on this video for a few days after I saw it up because I don't watch a lot of storytime/click bait-y videos, but as a korean-american who recently entered into therapy just a few months ago (and around the same age as jenn), I think it's so important that she's talking about what did and didn't work with her previous therapists. I actually saw another korean-american woman as my first therapist and had so much anxiety afterward and now I see a mixed race black therapist who has been incredible. there's something so valuable abt seeing another woc for therapy, and I'm so glad that jenn has found what she needs <3

    like honestly I can't believe that that one therapist told you to cut ties with your parents ... there was such an unwillingness on her part to understand how the culture you were raised in frames who you are today yeesh

    thank you for sharing your journey! It can be easy to be disheartened when you're struggling to find the right therapist. I've been through a couple, it's a vulnerable place to be in having to share your journey over and over with new people though so worth it when you find the right fit 💕💕💕

    Wow! You have some pretty intense therapists in the past. In my case, my first therapists was perfect for me♡ She and I had the same point of view and I love that she knew how to support me. However, my family is not really supportive about therapy in general and I am a student. That's the reason why I left therapy:c I did 4 months of it and I now can see a great advance in my anxiety and depressive problems. But it should be better if I keep going...

    Thank you for this video! As therapist myself I cannot stress enough the importance of at least researching the professional's credentials and asking questions about their experience during the first session. Also reading up on the differences between psychotherapy or counselling with a formally accredited mental health professional and other forms of therapy, which can also be helpful but are-not-the-same-thing. Glad you ended up in good hands and feel like you are moving forward in your process.

    Thank you for making this video! I feel like I haven't seen a lot of people on youtube talk about their experience with therapy and it's REALLY important. Anyway, I've been seeing the same therapist for about a year and a half now (with an 8 month break in between but that's another long story) and she's been AMAZING. I'm surprised that a lot of people say therapy doesn't work for them but as you say they have to WANT to change and work on themselves and it's all about if you click with them or not. So far, therapy has helped me to be more assertive and speak my mind while being considerate with people if that makes any sense? I also found out plenty of things and how to deal with situations and also how to cope with my anxiety. I think it has been a very important thing to do FOR ME.

    This is such a great video and I'm so happy you made it! I had a similar experience in that I didn't click well with my first psychologist and even though I saw her for a year I didn't get much out of it. I am currently at a day clinic at the hospital where you have therapy from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday for 12 weeks. Its really intense in that you are placed with a group of other patients and you are literally in therapy 24/7 for 3 months. Its only been 3 weeks but I hope this will finally help me.
