It’s pretty confusing figuring out how to pick a couples therapist…
A good couples therapist is hard to find. Believe me, there are plenty of hacks and quacks who will gladly take a few hundred up front and regurgitate what they read from the latest psycho babble book they found on the bookstore shelf. But here’s the real deal: couples therapists who are good and get results don’t seem like the type. They seem less successful than they really are and are way more low key than you might expect.
How do you separate the good ones from the bad?
Some of the best couples therapists I’ve had the pleasure of meeting had bland, simple websites with bad color schemes. They didn’t have a book they were hawking or a retreat they were trying to put together that would extract money from their hapless customers. No, they had a full client lists and were booked for weeks because they got results. Here are some things you need to look for in a couples therapist.
You see, what you want is someone who will offer intensive therapy one on one. You also want a therapist who makes it clear from the get go that they are not offering magical elixirs to fix your woes. You are looking for someone that will really work with you, but also someone that knows that some relationships are better off ending. You are looking for what is best for you, whatever that leads to. That’s what you want, and if a therapist offers that, they are worth every dime.
What should I expect when I go to see one?
Couples therapy is a very intense experience. You are going to be peering into aspects of your psyche that you never thought you’d ever experience. It’s really difficult to condense all of the many sensations and ideas you will be going through during couples therapy, but rest assured, you will not be the same person afterwards.
Taking action is the key to pretty much everything in life. To regain those initial sensual feelings you had when you first hooked up you need to take action and make the effort to try something new.
