Jericho, NY Therapist: What to Ask Before You Start 2560 1707 Right Path Counseling

Right Path Counseling has a full team of therapists at our office In Jericho, NY. If you’re in need of therapy or support for anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or other mental health needs, we connect you with the therapist that we think is the best fit for your treatment.

We are strong believers that the connection you have with your therapist is a critical part of the success of both therapy and recovery. You need trust, communication, and the feeling that you both get each other in order to stay engaged with your therapy and open minded to the process.

On your first day talking with your Jericho therapist, it is helpful to see if that connection is there. We encourage you to ask questions, and make sure that you’re with someone that is right for you.

What Are Some Questions to Ask?

Every person, and every condition, is going to have its own unique needs. We want you to ask the questions on the topics that matter most to you, even if they aren’t recommended below. You should ask what you feel will give you the most confidence in your therapist here at Right Path.

If you need some ideas, here are some questions you can start with:

  • What types of therapy modalities do you use?
  • Have you worked with someone like me before?
  • Are you available if I want to talk to you about issues unrelated to a specific condition?
  • What can I expect the therapy process to be like?
  • What is your availability if I need to change the appointment time?
  • How long do you think therapy will take for what I’m struggling with?
  • Do you give advice or is it just me talking?

The specific questions that you’ll want to ask your Jericho, NY therapist are going to be unique to you. But these are some examples of questions that can help you with your choice to continue, and hopefully inspire some of your own questions for therapy.
