When choosing a therapist from the mental health field, there are four factors to consider. The first is qualifications, which show that the individual has attained a standard of competence adequate for the position.
The second factor is expertise, which means that therapists who have dealt with similar issues in the past would have a good idea of what to expect. The relationship is the third factor to evaluate. A therapist should feel like a trustworthy partner on your road to development and someone with whom you can relate.
