Choosing a therapist is a daunting task. Looking for them can be a bit like a part-time job, it takes time until you find the right one.  It is indeed a special relationship which can seem lopsided and can even be triggering, so you have to make sure you’re with someone with whom you feel safe and seen, first and foremost. And of course, they have to have expertise, knowledge, wisdom and warmth. But what is crucial is the relationship that you will form with your therapist because it is the therapeutic relationship that will be the vehicle for change in your life. If you’d like to know more about why the therapeutic relationship is crucial, please watch this video.

You will know that you are with the right therapist if you tell them that you are upset or angry with them and that you feel hurt by what they have said. And rather than becoming defensive and blaming you for how you feel, they respond with curiosity and empathy, trying to understand your thoughts and feelings. Also, you feel seen, understood, and safe with them on a gut level.
