POST 21: THERAPY THAT WORKS…

This is not easy to write as what works for some does not work for others. By all means, if your therapy works for you…stick to it. If not….you know what to do. You pay for it and deserve quality services.

  1. Agree so much! It’s hard though, when you feel so beat down to think you’re getting help only to find that it isn’t the case. I know I felt defeated but it wasn’t only until I figured out what I really needed from a therapist that I was able to find ago if one.

    1. Thanks Kaye,
      I was conflicted to place the link in there as I do not want to tell people what is helpful or not, as they will know, but I also feel it is my responsibility to pick up on things and show the research evidence or lack thereof of certain approaches.
      I will follow up with this post and add more information.
      In general: the strength of the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the best predictor of outcomes.
      This means that if you have a good bond (you connect well) with you therapist, it will very likely be an effective professional relationship. It also means that when certain things are not helpful, you can give feedback.
