On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
You are entitled to your doubts and your skepticism. We have all heard stories about therapists who didn't do anything, or who actually made things worse. Your life and your relationship will be greatly affected by therapy, and it is important to choose wisely. Here are some ideas that might be of help.
First, become an educated consumer. Learn the differences between types of therapy. Many couples are dissatisfied with therapy because they went to someone who lacked sufficient training and experience working with couples.
Second, test several therapists before settling on one. Call and ask them about your misgivings. Ask about their training, techniques, and personal style of therapy. Ask about how they would work with the things you want to change. Once you've interviewed a few therapists, make an appointment for one session with each. You will be able to test how you feel sitting face to face with the person, and whether you think they understand you and your needs.
Third, remember that therapy is a collaborative process. A good therapist helps you clarify what you want to change and find ways to make change possible. The clearer you are about your preferences, the better off you'll be. If at any point you are dissatisfied or you are unsure if therapy is helping, tell your therapist about it.
We welcome your comments, compliments, and complaints every step of the way. Our number one priority is helping you have the best relationship possible!
