According to Therapists: Not Being Direct With Your Therapist

Your therapist is there for you. If something doesn’t make sense or feels off, be upfront and tell them.

“You won’t hurt our feelings,” “You can say, ‘This isn’t working for me,’ ‘I need you to be more challenging,’ or, ‘I’d like you to reduce the amount of advice you’re giving me and listen more.’ A good therapist will be honest with you about their style so that you can come to a nice working relationship.”

And don’t be afraid to ask questions. Though you may feel nervous or uncomfortable, remember that all questions or requests for clarification are totally valid.
