What if i don’t like therapy?
There are many many different types of therapies and therapeutic techniques. It is often useful to do some research before embarking on choosing a therapist. Firstly, ask around. Do you know anyone who has had successful treatment with a therapist? Could they recommend anyone to you? or could their therapist recommend one to you? Secondly, call a few therapists up and have conversations with them on the phone and see who you like the sound of. Finally, in the beginning, book a few first sessions with different therapists- you will very quickly discover who seems like a good fit and who doesn’t.
