Finally got the go-ahead and the paperwork from my psychiatrist to start therapy (for depression and anxiety) so now I really need to find someone good as when I did therapy a few years ago it didn't help at all.

Are there any particular questions I should ask or things to look out for when having a first meeting with a therapist? My options are very limited as I have to choose one from the approved list and then limited even more by needing one that speaks English but the first session is free so I could theoretically visit a few different ones and then pick the one that seems best.

Ask each one why your previous therapy did not work and what they could do differently to help you.

Ask what they think you could do differently this time around (as well)!
