Finding the right psychologist?!

By November 8, 2016the social scene

Choosing the right psychologist can sometimes feel like being lost amidst a sea of bubbles. We know that each therapist is unique, but on the surface it’s hard to know the differences between them, or who will be the best fit for you. There are different types of psychologists and counsellors, with different styles and approaches to therapy, as well as varying ideologies relating to psychology. The following are some resources that may help you find the best fit for you:

For Australians seeking a psychologist, you can use the APS “Find a psychologist” tool

For internationals looking for a therapist, Good therapy.org and the international therapist directory may be helpful

    My wife and I have been wanting to find a psychologist for our daughter as she’s been dealing with her friend’s death recently. I’m glad that you talked about how hard it is, and that every therapist is unique. I think that if we could find her a good psychologist who can help her work through this difficult time, she’s going to be able to move on much easier. Thanks for the info!
