How do I choose the right person ?

Before your first appointment, talk to the psychologist on the phone.

This is the right time to tell him about your situation and ask him:

  • if he has the skills needed to treat your specific problem,
  • what experience he has with cases like yours,
  • what kind of approach he uses.

You can also ask him specific questions, such as:

  • Where is his office? Is it easily accessible?
  • What is his availability? Can he meet you at a time of the week that is convenient for you?
  • How much does he charge?

Psychotherapy feels right and brings rewards when a relationship of trust is established between you and your psychotherapist. Keep asking questions! And if, after a few meetings, you still don’t feel trust, you have the right to continue your process with another professional.
