I come across more and more people, especially the younger generation, who had many psychologists or therapists, who could not help them. Degrees and certificates do not really say a lot in psychology. You have to find the right psychologist, that suits you.
How can you help someone to go through a hard time, when you never went through a hard time yourself ? How can you help someone to face their fears and issues, when you don’t face your own ? You can not explain someone how to help themselves, when you do not know how to help yourself.
2. Relationship between psychologist and client
There are many psychologists out there, with different approaches and personalities. For a successful therapy, it is very important that you have a good connection. Trust your feeling, wether this person can help you or not.
