He thinks I am depressed and have social anxiety (both of which I have) but apart from that he thinks I am a type 4 on the enneagram scale. Interestingly the unhealthy levels on the scale of behaviour includes avoidant personality disorders so maybe he is just using different jargon to describe the same thing.
To answer your queries, yes I feel like I overlook feelings and issues I should raise with my therapist, so it is a good idea to write it down before you get there. I also feel like sometimes I tell my therapist what I think he wants to hear aswell which doesnt help anybody. Writing stuff down in between sessions will help get to the crux of the feelings that will help your therapist to make an accurate diagnosis..
