    Great tips Amy! I fully agree and would add that therapists expect this process of choosing and are not at all offended if they are not the right match for a particular client. Therapy is much more effective if both client and therapist are communicating about this clearly!

      Hi Lynette!

      Thanks for dropping in on the blog. I’m glad that you commented about how important clear communication is. I talk to so many people who think that they are going to insult a therapist by asking too many questions. Isn’t it better to have this conversation in an upfront way rather than getting 3 or 4 sessions in, feeling that it’s not the right fit, and then just dropping off? That’s not good for anyone. I wonder how much information you volunteer to clients when they don’t ask?
      Cheers!
      Amy
