No relationship is perfect and sometimes it needs outside help to get it back on track. There’s nothing wrong with turning to a third party to have someone else hear both sides of the difficulties in your relationship so that you can both find a common ground to build from towards a brighter, happier and more satisfying future together.
When looking for a relationship counselor in Paducah, you should consider a few things:
- What are the person’s credentials?
- What is the person’s experience?
- What type of therapy does the person practice?
- How much does the therapist charge?
- What types of insurance does the therapist take?
All of these questions will help you determine if the therapist will be someone who fits within your ability to pay and your situation.
After you’ve found the answers to the above questions, you should then have a first session to uncover some other answers:
- Is this someone with whom you feel comfortable speaking with?
- Do you feel threatened by this person?
- Were there any comments or beliefs the therapist has stated that may be in conflict with yours that may be a barrier in therapy?
- Are there any other concerns?
Keep in mind that you may be uncomfortable because this is the first time you are speaking with the therapist. If you’re like most people, the idea of speaking to a therapist is awkward enough. Therefore, don’t let that cancel counseling out all together.
If you just feel uncomfortable talking, that is normal, but if you feel threatened or you feel judged by the counselor, you should seek another counselor. This is your safe place to explore your feelings, thoughts and actions, so you shouldn’t have to endure ridicule for that.
