In this video, Meghna Mukherjee, Psychoanalytical psychotherapist, Founder of the Engaging Circle explains what questions to keep in mind before starting therapy.
Finding the right therapist
There is nothing called 'the right therapist but the one who you feel is fit for you and you can open up to them easily.
What is the process of therapy?
A lot of people do not know what really happens in therapy. So, it is a good idea, to begin with.
What is the qualification of the therapist?
It can be really helpful to know the qualifications of the therapist you are consulting. This would help you understand whether you have found the right one.
What are you going through?
This is an important question that you must ask after one or two sessions of taking the therapy. You should know about your condition and be able to understand what it is and why it is happening.
How long will the therapy continue?
You should know how long you are supposed to take the therapy. You should feel free to ask this question to your therapist.
