What type of psychotherapist do I need?
It is important to do you research before you ring up a psychotherapist. Do you want a Freudian psychotherapist, a Jungian psychologist, a Kleinian psychotherapist or an independent psychotherapist. You would be well advised to have a consultation session to decide the boundaries of your treatment. For instance, you will need to know how many sessions you should have a week, when the breaks are and when you therapist goes on holiday. You will need to know how much notice have to give if you want to miss a session. Some therapists are very strict on this.
