Therapist Shopping

Third Party General Advice about shopping for a therapist

To solve your problem, we at Well On The Way suggest:

Choose a therapist that has training and certification in many different areas of holistic health and works as a member of a team with other holistic therapists. This type of therapist will evaluate your challenge with you and create a combination of therapies for the greatest opportunity for success.

Choose a therapist that looks at every aspect of your life for clues to your challenge. Choose someone who is trained not just in physical therapies. Choose someone who also has extensive training in stress relief and emotional discovery techniques. Not just one, but trained in many different avenues to release those stresses. Often a person may be blocked from accessing these underlying stresses consciously so the therapist will be successful if they can get at them non-consciously as well.

If you can, also get a therapist who is also extensively trained in personal development and accelerated learning techniques. This is harder to come by because most therapists concentrate on their expertise in the therapy field and don?t venture out into such diverse areas such as accelerated training techniques and career development. The result is the therapist may have the tools to help you when you are in their office but they can?t teach you the tools so you can use them when you leave. Or you have a professional block that isn?t being dealt with.

Choose a therapist that creates a group dynamic you have access to if you want it. Research shows that a group exponentializes your chances of success. The therapist should have self-help classes that teaches you specific techniques to help you physically and emotionally.

Choose a therapist with a sense of humor. If you can, find one that offers a Laughing Class.

You may not need a person with all those skills. But if you can find one, they may provide the missing piece to your puzzle. You are a multi-faceted person and you may need a team of people to help you. You need a person who embodies as many of those traits as possible and can refer you to someone on their team that has the missing ingredient you need if they can?t provide it for you.

STEP 1: Find your ideal therapist. You should have a good feeling and trust toward this person immediately and all your subsequent interactions should do more to confirm your trust.

STEP 2: Make your appointment and be prepared for an initial visit that lasts 1 to 2 hours.

STEP 3: Get a thorough evaluation that examines every possible area of your life (with few exceptions of your choosing) This includes both a physical exam and a dialogue.

STEP 4: Choose a plan that fits in your budget and in your time frame. Your therapist will have different options for you to consider.

STEP 5: Consider doing ALL the suggestions your therapist makes. That way, you have a better chance of success. Experience everything for a good, long trial period before considering dropping it. Compliance is key. Some things you will know if they are right within a short time. Other things may take 6 months to 1 year to properly evaluate. Within reason, stick to a therapy for the recommended period of time for best results.

STEP 6: At the 6 month point, review and re-evaluate. You should be getting substantial results by now. If not, you must be seeing significant small benefits and understand the that success is in the making.
