Find a therapist and finding one that you like is difficult over the phone. It’s hard to find a counselor especially if it is your first time reaching out for counseling. You’re not quite sure the questions to ask or what approach the therapist will take with your situation.
There are all sorts of different schools of thought that therapist use in counseling and you need to find one that understands and meshes well with who you are and your personality type.
There are many therapists who do what I call “Band-Aid therapy” and don’t necessarily talk much but run a 50 minute session shuffling you out at the end with no real work having been done.
This leaves the client feeling worse then when they came in. They do not feel validated. Many clients who Call Us say that it would take at least 3 to 4 sessions to just get the story across the therapist.
I personally run sessions an hour and a half to two hours basically because 50 minutes is a joke. There’s nothing you can do and 50 minutes that would be healing to the spirit and soul. You need time to get in and look at the fear it’s causing anxiety, depression, negative self talk etc.
It may take some time to locate a therapist that you feel is the right fit for you but there are some questions that you could ask over the phone that will help to hurry up the process and eliminate those therapist that you feel you will not be a good match with.
