There are numerous schools of thought and countless therapeutic techniques: How do you know what is right for you? Fortunately, clinical research has suggested that the efficacy of psychotherapy is largely due to:
1. Quality of the relationship between the therapist and client.
2. Maintenance of clear boundaries in the treatment.
3. The client’s willingness to change.
In addition to verifying that your therapist has been well trained and has experience, your honest and open responses to the therapist are your best guide to finding the “right” one for you.
