A good therapist teaches what he knows and provides clients with the tools to embrace therapeutic change and emotional growth from within. Compassion, empathy and rapport are key but a therapist must also know when to challenge maladapted behaviours and negative self talk.

Hi Andys
Thanks for your question
A good therapist is someone who can get you the result or outcome you're looking for, quickly and effectively.
If you're asking how to tell whether a therapist is good, there are a number of things you can consider:-
another person's recommendation is a good guide. If you don't have one, there are other things to look out for.
Firstly, professional qualifications, insurance and affililiation to regulatory bodies.
Then, the way a person carries out their business - Do ads, websites etc look professional? Can yu speak to the therapist on the phone, get questions answered etc. Response times for emails and returned calls, plus the content of the response you get will all give you an indication of what sort of person you are dealing with and whether they are a full time therapist. Someone who has made a full time commitment to what they do is probably better trained and more confident than someone who fits their trade around another job. A full time therapist will likely also be more refreshed and more able to give you full attention than someone who is also working in another job.
After you have weighed up these sorts of things, the best advice is to go with the one that feels right, maybe someone you find easy to talk to, or who yuo feel has been straightforward and honest with you.
So in short, do yur research and then go with your feelings!
I hope that's useful to you.
There's a page on my website called Choosing a Hypnotherapist if you'd like to have a look at it.

Genuinely wanting the best outcome for your client.
Empathy and understanding - it helps if you've had your own "journey".
Not being "perfect" - nothing worse than a goody two shoes who tells you what to do..!!
Knowing that you can't be all things to all people and realising that sometimes its best for the client to see someone else - either for a different treatment or different energy
Discretion, Confidentiality and making the client feel safe.
Knowing when to talk, when to ask questions and when to keep quiet
Experience....and practice

I agree with James and many others what they are saying. Also I like to add that I a good therapist doesn't let the client get depended on them but instead puts them on empowerment route of learning to take care of themselves too.
