Which of the above is right for you?
I’m sure that you’ve heard the saying, “There is no such thing as too much therapy.”
But there is definitely no such way to know whether a particular therapist is a good fit for you.
And, as with any decision about which therapy is right, there are pros and cons to each.
The pros and comms are worth considering, and I think we’ve got a good idea of them now.
Let’s start with a couple of common pitfalls.1.
You should ask questions What is the purpose of a therapist?
The best way to get the best therapy possible is to ask yourself: Is this person a good match for my needs?
And then you can figure out if that’s right for your situation.
The questions you ask may seem like they’re just asking for a yes or no, but they’re actually trying to help you figure out which therapist is best for you, so they’re also giving you some good information.
For example, if you’re looking for a therapist to help with ADHD, what are the main things you should look for in a therapist, and which ones do you really want to avoid?
You’ll also want to know if the therapist has a professional pedigree, or if they’ve worked with other therapists before.
If you want to see if the other therapists have the same kind of credentials, look them up online or look them in the mirror, and see if you can spot any differences.2.
Don’t rely on past experiences to decide If you find a therapist who has a long history of being good at helping with ADHD and/or anxiety, it might be a good bet to get in touch with them, and find out if there are any previous therapies they’ve done that worked for you before.
Some of these therapists might have worked with you before and are familiar with your symptoms.
Others might have done it only recently.
And still others might have a history of working with kids with ADHD or anxiety.
You’ll want to be sure to find out what their background is and how they got their training, and whether or not that training has improved.
If a therapist you’ve been with for years hasn’t changed their training or methods in a significant way, that may not be a reason to recommend them.
But if you feel that there’s something wrong with the therapist, you can try talking to them about it, and if they’re willing to change, you may be able to find a new therapist.3.
Don-t rely on therapists’ credentials or experience If you’ve worked closely with a therapist for years and are happy with their work, it’s probably a good sign that you’re not the only one.
Many therapists who are experts in ADHD or ADHD-related conditions have worked for years with other professionals.
So if you’ve got experience with that particular condition, it may be a great place to start.
But there are also other reasons why it might make sense to avoid a particular type of therapy.
If your therapist is experienced in helping with anxiety or depression, you might be looking for something that’s more about a therapist working with people with a similar or more severe anxiety or depressive disorder.
If they’ve had other ADHD or depression treatment and have worked in a setting where they’re able to focus on ADHD and its symptoms, you should probably consider that as well.
If there’s a lack of professional training or experience, it can make a big difference if you think you may want to move forward with a therapy that’s not working.4.
Don the long coat and take a shower The long coat is definitely a plus, but there are some people who prefer to go barefoot or in jeans and t-shirts.
And some people may not want to wear anything at all, but don’t forget that you’ll probably need some help getting into the shower and dressing, so you may need to find some help to get comfortable with your new therapist if you want a full treatment experience.5.
You may need a referral from your primary care doctor If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the idea of having a therapist or treating your ADHD, it could be a tough sell.
If that’s the case, you’ll want some help from a primary care physician to decide whether a therapist is right or wrong for you or whether a new treatment is right.
This might be difficult for some people, especially people with anxiety and depression, who don’t always have a mental health professional who can help them.
For these people, a referral is a helpful way to see whether they can find a therapy, and get it right.
That way, they’ll be able make the best decision for them.
If the referral is from a doctor, you want the referral to be as accurate as possible.
If it’s from a third-party, it should be fairly clear to you who is going to do the diagnosis, what the tests will look like, and how much information the doctor will give you about your condition.
And you should
