I had my first therapy session today, and I have to say it went fantastically.
There was an iffy start with the traffic (travelling into Amsterdam, by car, in rush hour is just not fun). At one point I had managed 3 mins of the journey, a distance of 2 miles in 15 minutes of traffic. At that point I started to worry that I would not make it on time.
Then there was parking once I was in Amsterdam. I found a space on a side street, and then searched for the machine to buy a parking ticket. Once found (why do they hide these!) I had to buy a ticket - no mean feat on mondern machines. If you had a voluntary user interface nobody would ever use it.
Anyway I digress. I got to the building, was let in had a coffee and we sat down and we started. He went though what I can expect from the VU when I eventually start there, and why I can expect it (all the psychology tests etc).
From there we started to speak about me. I think the most important thing is that we clicked. In almost no time the hour was up and we were making the next appointment. And even stranger, and to show how relaxed I was, the whole session was in Dutch - with the exception of one sentence that I didn't know
The next appointment is going to be a little more difficult as it's going to get more personal. But I am not too nervous.
I've been flying high all afternoon though and am just trying to stay there at the moment.
