    I have never been to any kind of couseling or therapy how do you know if you picked the right one to help you with your issues? I am 42 now and things in my life are building up and I have stuff from my past that is causing most of it.

    A lot depends on how confidant you are with the therapist and the technique. If it feels gimmicky or insincere it's less likely to work. You may want to look at various types of therapy, and if possible talk to different therapists, and find out what feels better for you. Even looking up different strategies on Wikipedia could be helpful in narrowing down your choices.
