The relationship between a therapist and a client is an extremely important one. Research suggests that the therapeutic rapport is the most important factor in creating therapeutic change. Your therapist is the person with whom you need to be honest, the one with whom you will share some of your darkest secrets, your fears, and your dreams. He or she will need to listen to you, understand what it’s like to be you, and assist you in attaining your goals. Your therapist will need to be honest with you and to educate you on issues related to mental health and your current struggles.Knowing this, your therapist above all should be someone with whom you feel comfortable. There are a lot of therapists out there, from Master’s level counselors to doctoral level psychologists, each one with a different personality and a slightly different approach to treatment. Find one you like. If you don’t feel comfortable, discuss it. If that doesn’t help, then consider a different therapist.
