Hello everyone. I've been seeing a therapist due to severe anxiety and depression and I don't think it's working out-- the therapist just doesn't seem like a good fit. I don't feel like I can tell her everything. She also doesn't really employ a method for coping with anxiety; it's more like she just lets me rant, which is can be beneficial but can only do so much. The next step is to find a new therapist of course, but it would be awesome to look for signs or techniques that an effective therapist treating social anxiety employs. I've been suffering from social anxiety for years and I'm tired of it constantly obstructing my life. If you have any tips about seeking professional help, that would be greatly appreciated. An answer to the title of my thread would also be welcome.
