Most of these associations will have a directory to help you find a therapist in your locality and they are very helpful with answering questions from the public.

When looking for a therapist near you, it is a good idea to ask for the therapist’s qualifications and specialties to ensure that they work in a field that is relevant to your needs.
If you are seeking marriage counselling, is the therapist an experienced relationship counsellor?
Are you seeking counselling for anxiety, does the therapist specialise in anxiety treatment?
If you are seeking assistance with a mental health disorder, is the therapist trained and experienced to treat this particular disorder?
You may also like to ask –
·  Does the therapist operate from home, online or an office?
·  Is the therapist part of a community organisation or are they part of a practice or professional group?
·  What are the opening hours?
·  Are you able to take time off work or does the counsellor offer after hours counselling or weekend counselling appointments?
·  What is the cancellation policy at the practice?
·  Does the therapist have a waiting list or are they able to see you within the week?
·  What are the fees for therapy and is there a sliding scale?
