Having said all this, you must know that your hesitations are valid, your inhibitions and concerns are valid.

But, always remember that therapy is a place where you can be yourself. You should have nothing to hide or be ashamed of. Your relationship with your therapist is a therapeutic alliance that is meant to help you feel better and be better. It is a healthy exchange that starts with you, exists for you, and is driven by you. Be honest, even about the hesitations and negative beliefs that are holding you back, and see how things improve.
