How to find the best psychologist

Our mental health concerns have increased day by day besides physical aspects. After COVID-19, the people of Bangladesh also became more aware of the mental health crisis & came out from stigmas of it. There are so many mental health specialists & organizations who provide psychological support. For instance, there are some public institutions like the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and Bangladesh Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) where you can get psychological treatment at a cheap cost. You can also have quality facilities at a reasonable price in private institutions like LifeSpring. You can get many top psychiatrists and psychologists here. 

Well, you got the idea of who and where to go. Did you think, “How do I know who is the best psychologist near me?” Here, we are going to address the specific concern:

Firstly, take some time to ask yourself:

What are the issues, needs, or concerns you would address (e.g., anxiety, OCD), and what kind of therapy do you want to go through (e.g., CBT, DBT)? Also, are there any preferences based on psychologists’ fees, gender, cultural background or specialities, etc.?


Secondly, you may explore all the options available:

Ask your near and known ones for recommendations, look for information on various online platforms, and search for psychologists as per your location. You should check a psychologist’s details like areas of expertise, approach or treatment method, and licensure and read their reviews of client feedback.


Finally, rely on your knowledge:

Considering all the available data of psychologists, you may then match those with your matters and go for a consultation by discussing your needs and sense of comfort. You must believe your instinct because this can help you reach your destination.

Personal experience in locating the best psychologist

My friend, Abir, regularly visits a psychologist and often shares his blissful journey with me. I find it admirable that his life is changing positively on a large scale.

After that,I scheduled consultation calls, where I shared my questions and concerns. After the calls, I evaluated the explored options and went with my instinct.”
