Choosing the Right Therapist

Choosing the Right Therapist

An insightful guide by Jonathan Shedler, PhD. From the article: “The early sessions should focus on developing a shared understanding of what is really the matter—an understanding that makes sense to both of you. “What is really the matter” is not your depression or anxiety or eating disorder. It is what is going on psychologically that is causing these difficulties. A shared understanding of what is the matter provides a focus for therapy. Effective therapy has a focus.”
