5 Steps to Finding the Right Therapist for You
Part of Acknowledgement is accepting your truth. Talking about things can be one way to work on accepting your truth, and a licensed therapist can be a good person to turn to for help.
Below are five steps to finding a therapist who is the right fit for you:
- What’s your training and background?
- Do you specialize in anything particular?
- Do you have a background in working with survivors of sexual abuse?
- Are you a practitioner of EMDR? If so, how long have you been practicing this form of therapy?
The way that they respond will help you get to know them a little better and allow you to know if they have the knowledge, traits, etc., most important to you.
Talk therapy can be an important step on your healing journey, but only if you have a therapist who is a good match for you, who you can trust. Too often survivors won’t get the full benefit of talk therapy simply because they can’t open up to their therapist. Don’t be afraid to find someone else who you CAN talk to. You’re worth it.
