If you are suffering from a mental illness or depression or anything which you think that is not normal inside you (in terms of feelings) then you should consult to a psychologist right away. But you don’t have to feel bad about it, because we all have been there and it is completely okay because you are not alone in this. There are many people who have trust issues and people who suffer from mental health issues, they are very choosy when it comes to trusting people or if they want to open up to people. For them finding a trustable psychologist, is the most difficult task.
Since there are hundreds of psychologists out there and you don’t know which one will be the best listener for you. So, you need to read this article as it has mentioned some of the best questions to ask to a psychologist when it comes to consulting them. First thing is that, if the psychologist is a good listener, you have found your person. Because the basic job of any psychologist is to listen to people. We know that consulting a psychologist can be very expensive and if you have your medical insurance, you need to ask that how much the therapy cost and will there be a fee at every session or will your insurance cover all the charges or you have to pay some extra amount as well.
If you have found the answer to the above question, now is the time to ask them that if they could do a small session with him/her just to see if you open up easily or not. Because you will be spending your insurance money or just private charges, then you need to make sure that you are getting what you need. Psychologists have a really busy schedule and you need the one who gives you most of his/her time. So, before finalizing any one, you need to ask them if they are accepting new clients or not.
You also need to ask if they are okay with different gender roles because a psychologist needs to have a very open mind and should welcome all sorts of patients. If you finalize any one after asking all these questions, you should ask one final question, what will happen if this therapy doesn’t work and if they give you a satisfactory answer, start sessions with them.
