Some people think that going to a therapist like going to a car mechanic: they expect the therapist to diagnose a specific problem and fix it just as a mechanic putting in new brake pads or reset the carburetor.
This client is expecting something to happen to them. That did not happen. Do not expect anyone else to have all the answers. The therapist does not come with a crystal ball. You have the answers. They are already within you. If you are looking for counseling and psychoanalysis then you can search on various web sources.
Psychotherapists help you find answers as you examine the thoughts, feelings, and behavior. In therapy you can learn new skills to help you communicate better, difficulties decrease, and increase the benefits of your life.
Do not be afraid to shop around for a good match between you and your therapist. No matter how well-trained the therapist is, if you are not comfortable with him or is willing to talk about personal problems or feelings, you will be wasting your money. Believe your intuition.

If you have a friend or family member who admiring about their therapists take seriously recommendations only if your friends or family have shown significant and visible changes in behavior and attitudes during their therapy.
After the doctors finished their basic training they can continue special training to become a surgeon, gynecologist, cardiologist, and more. This does not happen with a psychotherapist. Most psychologists, marriage, and family therapists, and social workers received basic training plus the equivalent of apprenticeship before they take their licensing exam.
It is ok to ask directly about your therapist's background and ask what qualifies them to become a specialist in the problem to be dealt with.
