Looking for a therapist?

Tips on what to look for…

It’s important to realize that you are a consumer paying for a service when seeking help from a therapist. This may not be your first priority when you are in pain or experiencing personal problems.

Questions to ask your therapist

The process of looking for someone to help you can be a difficult task, as there are many different approaches to helping people. When seeking a therapist, ask questions - the kinds of questions aimed at finding out what the therapist's background, theoretical orientation and education is. It would also be wise to ask what experience they have in dealing with the kind of problem/s you are experiencing. Find out how long the therapy will take. Therapy is expensive and some approaches take much longer than others.

When to keep looking

Never feel intimidated by a therapist! This is very important because you must feel comfortable with the person that you are working with and trust them. Ask for a introduction session. Search until you find someone whose style and manner is right for you. Consider asking the therapist you think you would like to work with for a session in which you can ask them about how they work.

Who should not use

online therapy!

Online therapy is not for everyone. Several kinds of issues are generally not suitable for this approach to helping people: If you are experiencing a crisis, online therapy is not for you - seek help from your local ER or crisis center. If you are struggling with violent impulses (family violence, battering or homicidal thoughts), online therapy is not for you. If you are struggling with suicidal thoughts or behavior, or If you have a serious psychiatric disorder and are under the care of a psychiatrist, online therapy is not appropriate for you.

What

to

do

if

you

are in crisis!

Most communities have publicly accessible mental health services. This is your first resource when looking for help, especially if you cannot afford seeing a private practitioner. If you are in crisis your local Hospital Emergency Center is where you should seek help especially if you are experiencing psychotic or suicidal thoughts.
