How do I know if a Registered Psychologist is right for me?

It is important that there be a good match between you and your psychologist. You can obtain an initial impression by asking a few questions when you first consult the psychologist. Some questions you might ask could be:

  • Are you accepting new clients?
  • What are your fees?
  • What are your hours?
  • How much experience do you have helping people with concerns similar to mine?
  • What does a typical session look like?
  • What techniques do you use?

If you feel that you can only form an impression by meeting the psychologist in person, ask him or her about a consultation. Some clients prefer to interview a few psychologists in person before deciding who to work with. Please be advised that Registered Psychologists may charge a fee for the initial consultation.
