If you feel that psychotherapy may be for you, remember that it requires a significant emotional and financial commitment, as well as your time. You may want to ask yourself the following questions:
Will you be attending psychotherapy by yourself, with your partner/spouse, or as a family?
If you want to bring a loved one to therapy, are they prepared to come willingly? Forced therapy tends to have poor outcomes.
What are your hopes/expectations for therapy? This may inform the type of therapist you choose.
Will you use your medical aid to pay for therapy? Enquire about medical aid benefits and limits ahead of time.
If you will be paying privately, how much can you afford? Some therapists are amenable to reduced rates.
How far are you willing to travel?
What days and times would be convenient?
