How to choose a Therapist (the short hand version).

**Because we start life connected to our mothers the eternal struggle is the need for connection versus the need for independence….we are hard wired for connection**

Relationships are the most powerful tool for psychological health we have at our disposal. 

Finding a therapist you want to have a relationship with is really essential and vital to the psychotherapeutic process. Theory and modality does matter but time and time again we are shown that it is the relationship that heals. They are powerful vehicles for developing awareness, connecting with our pasts and cultivating real and lasting change.

Credentials are obviously important as you want to be ensured that the person you choose is qualified, competent and practicing safely, of course.

Beyond that, choose someone you want to have a relationship with. Every time.
