Below are some questions people frequently ask me.
How do I find a good counsellor?
When searching for a counsellor, people want to know how to find a good one. Ultimately, qualifications and work experience may not be enough. Research in counselling and psychotherapy shows consistently that the quality of the relationship between client and therapist is the key factor in clients achieving successful outcomes in therapy. What this means is, you may find a counsellor who can tick all your boxes on paper – qualifications, experience, gender, age, philosophy etc. etc. In the end though, for the therapy to work you need to have a good feeling about your relationship.
In order to find the right therapist therefore the best question to ask yourself when you are shopping around is – “do I feel good about this connection? Deep down, on an emotional level, do I feel like this person can help me?” If the answer you have to these question, on a gut level is “no”, then you should keep looking.
Because I’m aware of this factor, I offer all prospective clients a free 10 minute discussion over the phone to get some sense of their issue and whether or not we are a good fit for each other.
