How do you know a therapist is the right one for you? Do you need someone who’s suffered the same loss or trauma as you? Or does it matter? Based on a great question from a listener, Dr. Margaret will be looking into what you might want to consider when you make your choice.

The listener email today is someone who’d listened to Episode 069 on victim/savior relationships and wanted to know if it was possible to change that dynamic into a healthier one.

Don’t forget to send in your email questions to askdrmargaret@drmargaretrutherford.com as SelfWork gets closer to its 100th Episode!

My new book entitled Perfectly Hidden Depression has arrived and you can order here! Its message is specifically for those with a struggle with strong perfectionism which acts to mask underlying emotional pain. But the many self-help techniques described can be used by everyone who chooses to begin to address emotions long hidden away that are clouding and sabotaging your current life.
