Or maybe you feel there are questions the therapist should ask of you?? I just interviewed one by phone who asked me great questions I wish had been asked of me.
1) why are you coming to therapy?
2) what kind of trauma are you talking about processing? I want to make sure it’s my specialty (I loved that she said this) so you can get the best care
I will start with a question I wish I had asked:
1) what experience do you have with childhood trauma, and how do you work with it?
There is always more work to be done.

I would ask about their technique. How long they have been a therapist. What they specialize in.
For instance I had a therapist for about 6 months who seemed to just want to hear me vent. She would nod her head and the only feedback given was just words of empathy or assumptions about how I was feeling. While I think some may need that, I was looking to fix my damaging thought patterns and improve my relationships/depression/anxiety. I needed more than empathy. I needed feedback.
One should know within 2 or 3 visits if they are feeling like they are being helped significantly. If you aren't or aren't sure if you are, then move on.
