Questions to ask yourself when choosing a therapist

What’s most important in a therapist or counsellor is whether they provide you with a sense of connection, a safe environment and are supportive. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Does it seem like the therapist truly cares about you and your problems?
  • Do you feel as if the therapist understands you?
  • Does the therapist accept you for who you are?
  • Would you feel comfortable revealing personal information to this individual?
  • Do you feel as if you can be honest and open with this therapist? That you don’t have to hide or pretend you’re someone that you’re not?
  • Is the therapist a good listener? Does he or she listen without interrupting, criticising, or judging? Do they pick up on your feelings and what you’re really saying? Do they make you feel heard?
