Seeking counselling is an act of self-care. It’s okay to not know what to expect, or feel awkward, confused, and scared about seeking therapy. Reach out to a mental health professional and ask your questions. When going to a counsellor or therapist for the first time, it is alright to ask them about their qualifications and their attitudes towards receiving supervision and therapy for themselves (yes, therapists need to be in therapy too to ensure their own issues are not spilling over the client’s sessions!). If you find them evading your questions or not giving satisfactory answers, it is alright to seek another therapist. Also, not every therapist will be the right fit for you - and that’s okay. However, if you find yourself changing therapists frequently, sometimes, it helps to explore what’s really not working for you, and what is it that you are really seeking.
Questions around the therapists’ experience, the fee they offer, are also valid. Curiosity is always welcome!
