What If The Anxietycentre Therapist I Want Is Not Taking New Clients?

Last updated April 25, 2021

Anxiety Question:

What if the therapist I want to work with is not taking new clients at the time? What should I do, wait, or pick another one of your recommended therapists?


Since our recommended anxiety disorder therapists take clients on a first-come basis, they do frequently book up. But because they also have clients in various stages of progress, they also have openings come available frequently as clients complete their work or withdraw for various reasons, such as holidays, taking a break, financial challenges, work hour changes, time conflicts, and so on.

So, if you find that the therapist you want to work with is booked up, you can put your name on the therapist’s waiting list and hope that an opening comes available soon. And sometimes, therapists have an opening or two but haven’t changed their status yet, so you may be able to meet with them sooner than you think.

Or you can choose to meet with another one of our recommended therapists. Since all of our recommended therapists are experienced at anxiety disorder resolution, any one of them would be a good choice.

Ultimately, the final decision comes down to personal preference and how urgent you believe your need is.

If you are uncertain about which therapist to choose as an alternative, email us a brief history of your struggles with anxiety disorder, and we would be happy to make a recommendation for you. If you’d rather talk to us about choosing the right therapist, you can either phone us at 1-403-208-0091, or email us your phone number and one of us will phone you. Our office hours are 9 AM to 5 PM MST, Monday through Friday. If you get our message system, leave a message and one of us will call you back at the next opportunity.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed – which we call the underlying factors of anxiety – a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
