How to get the best results from an online psychologist
With so many online psychologists, how do you know which ones are the right fit for your situation?
That’s why we’re publishing a new guide to help you figure it out.
Psychologist Tallahashire, who runs a consultancy, explains that “the key to effective online psychologist is to identify the best fit for the job and ask yourself if it’s a good fit for you.”
“I’ve been doing online psychology for more than 10 years, and it’s been one of the most successful ways to reach out to clients.”
He’s also a strong advocate for using online resources to get you started.
He recommends you use the following tips to determine if a psychologist is right for you.
Ask questions that will help you understand the psychologist, Tallahhashire says.
Ask questions like, “Does the person you are seeing have any of the same characteristics you’ve had in the past?”
Ask about their background, and how they got to where they are.
If the psychologist has experience with mental health problems, he or she may have a background in the field, he says.
If they have a passion for their profession, they may be a trained psychologist who has developed a professional reputation.
Ask how long they have been in the job before starting.
You may want to find out about their experience, he explains.
“If they’ve been working in this field for 10 years or more, you might be interested in what they’ve done in their career.”
Ask if the person will talk to you.
Ask them if they’re comfortable talking to you, and whether you want to talk to them about your issues.
You should also ask questions like:Is there anything else you need to do with this person?
Will they be available for a call in the future?
If you can’t find a psychologist who is right to meet your needs, Tallahshire suggests you start your search for a mental health professional.
