Looking for a counsellor or psychotherapist in Dublin
Finding a psychotherapist in Dublin can be a confusing thing to do. There are so many different types of therapy on offer, whether psychoanalysis, CBT, counselling, or other forms of talk based therapy, that for the uninitiated even finding someone to talk to can be difficult.
How do you choose the right Dublin Psychotherapist for you?
There is also the fact that when it comes to our mental health, there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. It’s true that similar complaints or symptoms can be shared by many different types of people, but the reason that any one person suffers in a particular way is totally unique and singular to them. Therefore what works for one person might no work for another.
Added to this complication is the fact that unlike many other types of services there is still a reluctance to talk about therapy. Despite great steps having been taken towards being more open about mental health, there are still many very valid reasons why people are less likely to recommend a psychotherapist to friends or colleagues.
The Single Most Important Thing When Choosing a Psychotherapist or Psychoanalyst
So what can someone who is in distress, or is simply looking for someone to talk to, do to reduce the chances of seeing the wrong person? The single most important thing in a successful outcome is the therapeutic relationship - do you feel comfortable with your therapist? Do you trust that they can help you? It is only by speaking with a psychotherapist or counsellor that you can get a feel for how good a fit they are for you.
That’s why we at Sandymount Psychotherapy encourage people to call first, and we offer a initial short consultation over the phone or video call. This allows you to get a sense of the person you will be working with, and ask any question before beginning. You can schedule your consultation for counselling in South Dublin by dropping us a line from the contact page. You’ll be glad you did.
