How I did it: I wanted to comparison shop for a therapist who i felt could help me the most at this point and time in my life.
I trust my intuition enough to know who i feel is a right fit for me or not. So I decided to see who was out there and who I connected with more. I saw 8 therapists ( which is a lot) I just wanted to know who was out there and what the options were. So my search began. There was 4 therapist that I felt were not a right fit for me but then there were 4 that I could see myself working with. So how do you decide from there? Most people I think that would be too many choices and would be hard to decide. I trust my intuition very much so I knew I would be able to decide and make the right choice for me. So after seeing everyone once I had to make a choice. So I meditated on it and thought about it and then I knew who the person was that would be the best fit and who could help me the most. She does groups and inner child child work and finding your life's purpose groups and deals with people and anxiety so all in all felt she could help me the most and plus she seemed like a very warm person that really cares about people. I feel confident with my decision and choosing her over the others. So I made an appointment to see her and the rest is history... Read how I did it… 2 months ago
i met with angela for the second time today, and after i found out she’s a member of the “church” that i go to, i think i’ve found the right lady. i told her about my list of things i want to accomplish (a play on a unity principle), and she’s encouraged me to spend some time doing a deep dive on what it really is that i want for myself… writing it down, and bringing it to her when we meet next week.
i’m excited that i’ve found the right person, with the right beliefs and interests to really get things going. yay. 16 months ago
after a second round of shopping, i’m going to give the lady i saw last week another shot this week. at this point, i feel like the worst of what i was feeling is over, but maybe it’s good for to start seeing someone regularly to shake out the cobwebs.
i think i’ll go at least 3 more times to see how it goes, but i’m on the right track! 16 months ago
...but she was a little kooky and not the right fit. So I’ll continue to search! :) 17 months ago
Three years later, I finally did this. After a painful relationship led to a breakdown, I sought help. I’ve only had 5 sessions, and it’s not easy to see yourself and your patterns, and most importantly try to change them, but I have a feeling it’s going to be worth it.
