some things you might like to think about in deciding whom to approach:
the gender of your therapist important to you?
Are you looking for someone with knowledge and experience of a particular
problem? (The ACTO Register shows each therapist's particular areas
of knowledge and experience.)
How much can you afford to pay?
you know what you are looking for in your ideal therapist, work
your way through the Register making a note of people who meet your
criteria. Then follow the links in the Register to each of these
therapists' websites to find out more about them and get a feel
for what they might be like to work with. (If the ones you select
do not have their own websites you will need to email them to find
one with whom you think you would feel comfortable and send an email
enquiry (or ask for an initial live session if these are offered).
Some of our therapists offer a free initial email or live session,
which provides the opportunity for you to find out more about their
experience and qualifications, how they work as a therapist, and
also how they respond to what you say.

Do you feel they would offer adequate support?
