Here are ourr top tips when you are trying to find a therapist who can help you in your relationships or through anxiety and depression.
Finding a Therapist in Evanston Tip #1:
Read the therapist’s website. Do they help with the stuff you are struggling with? You want someone who understands and is trained to help. All therapists have some sort of expertise. For example, we help a lot of college students, young adults, new moms, empty nesters, and individuals struggling with depression and anxiety – basically we help people through big life transitions.
Finding a Therapist in Evanston Tip #2:
Have a consult with the therapist and ask questions. we offer a free consult to anyone interested in starting therapy or hypnotherapy. It’s a good chance for us to get to know each other and for you to make sure it’s the right fit for your counseling needs.
Finding a Therapist in Evanston Tip #3:
Talk to someone you trust for a referral. Believe it or not, you probably know some people who have been to therapy. They are really going to be able to tell you if who they saw was helpful. Don’t be afraid to ask for a referral from a friend.
Finding a Therapist in Evanston Tip #4:
Look at your options. Not all therapy is the same. Sometimes it can be long term therapy, sometimes shorter term therapy, and sometimes the therapy is a different type of talk therapy (like pet therapy or hypnotherapy). During the consult with your potential therapist, explore what kinds of services they have so you know your options in getting help. *It’s important to note that therapy is different than life coaching, something that sometimes gets confused.. Life coaching is for people who are looking a concrete solution and is directive in nature. Therapy is more relationship based and focused on healing and moving forward with more confidence, clarity and support.
