It takes some time to find the right trauma counsellor for you. The first step is to ask some basic questions so that you understand how they work and can gauge your comfort level with their responses.
If you think you may have found a trauma counselor you can work with, here are some good questions to ask before booking that first appointment. You may not need to ask all these questions, but you can make a short list of questions that are important for you to know.
Notice how the professional handles your questions and whether you feel comfortable in their response to you. Your first impression will help you to make a decision on whether they will be a good choice for you.
Remember, although trauma skills are important in working with trauma resiliency and recovery a good connection where you feel safe and understood is essential.
This may be the first time you are dealing with issues of great concern for you. Take your time to choose a therapist who you feel safe with and comfortable enough to share what may be the most difficult moments in your life.
You might find it useful to speak with several trauma therapists before choosing the one who best meets your needs. Most therapists do charge for an initial consultation but this would be a worthwhile investment in order for you to find the trauma counsellor who can assist you in your recovery process.
