Selecting a psychologist is similar to selecting any other professional. You should assess the psychologist’s credentials, including both training and experience. Discuss the fees before you begin treatment, and verify your insurance coverage for psychological treatment. Ask questions about the services that will be provided, so you will not get something different from what you expected. If you are still having difficulties making a decision check with the provincial psychological association. In Nova Scotia, you may want to contact the Association of Psychologists of Nova Scotia (see links).
