If you ever had to visit a psychologist’s clinic, you would know that it is not an easy task. In fact, it was a bit scary at times. Finding a great psychologist is like looking for a small push pin in the plush carpet. It is possible but frustrating.
But finding a good psychologist to get metacognitive therapy (also known as ‘Metakognitiv terapi’ in Danish) is not too difficult. You may follow the following instructions:

- Ask questions about a psychologist you are considering. Find out more about their specialties and how long and where they have been practicing.
- Find their license numbers on your state government business database to ensure their current license.
- Find out if they accept the office of your insurance policy. If you do not have insurance, find out if they offer a discount for full payment or for individuals who are not insured.
- Make sure the location of the practice they are uncomfortable or too far away.
- Find out more about their emergency policies. Are they available around the clock? You can reach them at any time if needed? Is there another psychologist in the office with whom you can visit or called if the psychologist you are not available?
- Find out what their office hours are convenient for you and if they can work with your schedule.
After narrowing the list of a potential psychologist, make a list of questions when you go for a consultation or initial evaluation. Trust your instincts. You may feel uncomfortable during the initial consultation, but try and focus on how a particular psychologist makes you feel. If you are left with bad feelings, psychologists may not be suitable for you.
