I have never been to any counseling before and don't know how to choose someone to speak with? My primary care physician didn't have any recommendations and my insurance book has a long list of names. I am having problems at work and with my self esteem (among others) and don't really know who to speak with. I would appreciate any suggestions with this. What I should ask when I first contact the appropriate person?

most of societys best counsellors are free, try your church, a close friend, family or volunteer to help others. Your work should have a programe for employee counselling and dont be ashamed for asking for help for yourself, no one is an island, all of us need support. Please do not neglect to pray, prayer works miracles.

psychiatrist can prescribe drugs, psychologists tend to specialise in different fields, for low self esteem i would call a battered womens shelter and ask if they could recommend some counsellors. Self esteem issues are major with abused women. Hope i helped.
