What sort of therapist will most likely help you reach your potential? Numerous research projects have shown that, no matter what kind of therapy you choose, the therapeutic relationship is all-important in healing.
Here’s what to look for in a therapist:
· Does your therapist have the skills and training necessary to understand your particular issues?
· Do you feel your therapist “gets you?”
· Do you feel respected in the relationship?
· When you leave a session, do you feel better than when you came in? Or at least hopeful for your future?
I hope these guidelines will be helpful to you, and I’d be happy to hear from you if you’d care to share a story about either good or bad therapy.
