How to choose the right therapist

All the research shows that above all it is the relationship between the therapist and the client that determines the successful outcome of therapy. It is the quality of the relationship, not the type of therapy that makes the difference. It is therefore worth taking your time to find the right therapist to work with.

You can talk to several therapists before deciding who to work with. You can find out more about the therapist during the initial session, including experiencing how they work. After the initial session, you can decide whether they are a good fit for you. Take your time, you can have several initial appointments before you decide which therapist to work with. Finding the right therapist makes all the difference.
