How to Find the Right Therapist for Yourself

There are decisions you want to make in life but have been stuck making them. You are prepared to embark on your own therapy journey and find a professional who can support you as you make these decisions. However, there are many therapists out there and it's difficult finding the right one! Some of you may have even taken a leap of faith to see a therapist, felt judged by them and stopped returning.

This is yet another decision to make and it mirrors all the other decisions you have to make in your life. You're stuck.

Is this something you relate to ?

This is something we have heard numerous times from our clients and that is why we have our first-session therapy to empower them to make the right decision. They have found it very useful and many has suggested that if only they knew about these earlier!

  3. learning more about their unique “lens” or “filters.” 
  4. exploring what works or does not work in promoting closeness or intimacy in relationships.
