How to Choose a Psychotherapist Who Understands You

  Psychotherapy in Dubai is one of the most successful treatments for emotional and mental problems, and is widely been accepted by the masses as a viable cure. However, if you truly want to reap the many benefits of therapy, it is indispensable to find a therapist you can trust and who has the ability to change your life for the better. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when selecting or possibly meeting up with a new therapist:

How Does The Therapist Make You Feel?

Treat your first anxiety counselling in Dubai session as a date and ask yourself the following questions: Do you feel comfortable and safe opening up to the therapist? Does the therapist feel emotionally removed and cold, or are they easily relatable and down-to-earth? How easy is it to make small talk? Is the counselor empathic and emotional or “stuck in their head”? Does the therapist seem like a “know it all snob? While going to a therapist for the first time is nerve-wrecking, especially the prospect of confiding in a stranger, it is important that you keep your own anxiety and paranoia at bay until after you have made an unbiased judgment. If the therapist still doesn’t seem like a good fit, you should listen to your instincts and look for another one.

 What’s The Counselor’s Approach to Helping and General Philosophy? 

It is important to scrutinize if your therapist treats patients in an optimistic and compassionate way, and whether they see people as being genetically deficient or capable of loving and being loved. All credible counselors and therapists stick to the elements of good therapy and the well being of their patients is their main concern. Notice if the counselor is clearly able to define how they can help you root out the causes of your condition and solve the concerns which brought you to therapy. Experienced counselors will be able to provide you with a basic “road map” to their strategy and approach, which can provide an indication of how you would know when you are healed and your therapy is finished.

Can your counselor Admit Mistakes and Accept Honest Feedback?

In order to foster a trusting relationship with their patient, a professional counselor should be open to feedback and realize that something they may have said hurt your feelings. A counselor worth his salt is willing to openly and honestly admit mistakes, check their feelings, and look at themselves critically.
