What is the power of a good therapist?
Never underestimate the power of a good therapist. A strong therapeutic alliance and the ability to work together can help change your life for the better. At Confidant Health, we've developed a unique approach toward therapist-patient "matchmaking" to ensure you reap the benefits of a good therapist.
The Power of Feeling Understood
Feeling misunderstood can discourage you from talking openly about your emotions. The right therapist will make you feel understood and allow you the freedom to make mistakes without judgment.
Although a therapist may challenge you to make positive changes, you should feel comfortable. If therapy feels like a chore, it’s time to find a new provider.
The Power of Positive Encouragement
A patient-therapist relationship should embody all of the qualities of a good friendship. You should feel trust, support, and mutual respect during your therapy sessions. Treatment should encourage you to communicate and to feel safe doing so.
A non-judgmental attitude on behalf of the therapist is essential to creating a strong bond. The goal is to create a safe space where you can feel relief and positivity.
The Power of Validated Information
Looking for answers online can leave you frustrated. The sheer amount of information available means that what you’re reading is often false, doesn’t apply to you or is unnecessarily negative.
In comparison, a therapist has the training and education to keep you well-informed. Plus, their intimate knowledge of your situation can ensure the information is relevant.
How Confidant Ensures You Find a Good Therapist
The traditional method of finding a therapist requires significant time, energy, and even money. You would have to visit your primary care provider to receive a referral before visiting the therapist. You'd have to pay for both of these appointments and repeat the entire process if you weren't satisfied with the therapist.
At Confidant, we've completely revolutionized this process, making it more convenient than ever -- thanks to our novel "matchmaker" approach and our telehealth model. When you enroll with Confidant, a matchmaker -- someone familiar with all of our providers -- selects a therapist who seems like a good fit for you. Not happy with that therapist? No problem, use the app to contact your matchmaker and request a new one.
We know just how powerful a good therapist can be, and we're committed to making it as easy as possible for you to make positive changes in their life.
