Maybe you’ve asked a friend, family member, or trusted colleague for a recommendation.
But the person they recommended wasn’t a good fit for you. You just didn’t click with them. Listen, it happens. Just like a new person that you’d meet, you may like, dislike, or feel completely indifferent. And it’s okay because therapists and psychologists are people, too, after all.
Picking a mental health professional to work with is an important decision.
Opening up and being vulnerable about your struggles with just one person is hard enough. Going through that process with two, even three people, until you find someone that you want to work with isn’t ideal. Plus, it’s an investment of your time and financial resources. The biography pages and profiles on Psychology Today and other directories blend together and just don’t cut it. You want to get a feel for the mental health professional you’d be working with from someone that had the same problem.
That’s why success stories are crucial.
Hearing about the experience of another person that found themselves where you are can have a big impact. But it doesn’t seem like most therapists and psychologists have many client reviews.
Here’s why you can’t find many success stories.
First, as mental health professionals, we can’t ask clients for testimonials due to ethical expectations and legal restrictions. Asking for one may put the client in an awkward position, even if they’ve finished therapy. And second, there’s still a stigma around mental health. Clients (very rightly) worry about the unforeseen personal and professional consequences of publicizing that they’ve worked with a mental health professional.
