I go into sessions very often feeling like that - shut down, no desire to access my emotional side. What I do before I go in is just tell myself stay open, stay open, stay open. I visualize rainbow light coming out of my heart.

For these sessions I never have anything planned to talk about (not that I often do) but I think when I am in that shut-down mode it is particularly important for me just to go in and be open to whatever comes up.

I think my therapist senses that I am making myself vulnerable and he is gentler (not a typical trait of his) and somehow more relaxed.

It doesn't always work and it's still never a very productive session but at least I usually am able to re-establish a bit of a connection.

I'm okay. I had a very strange session yesterday. Not bad, just strange and I'm still trying to process it. If I can, I'll open a thread on it.
