The Next Steps
Finding a psychologist and beginning therapy can often be a daunting and stressful process. When we choose a mental health therapist (psychologist or counsellor), it is important to consider the professional’s professional qualifications, expertise, and experience. An essential ingredient for therapy success is that you feel comfortable with the therapist and that it is a good ‘fit’ for you. An effective psychologist or counsellor is someone we feel at ease talking to, who hears and understands our concerns, and who has the clinical skills to guide us along our journey of personal growth, recovery, and wellness.
