What sort of therapist do I need?

I am tired of myself, and feeling like I do, and I feel very isolated with it all. I realise that probably need to go and talk with someone. What kind of therapist do I need to look for? Does anyone have any recommendations for English speaking therapists in Amsterdam?

I don't want to use his space to splurge out all of my problems, I'll keep it short. I'm a British male in my mid-20s. For the past couple of years I have been feeling the weight of loneliness, lack of direction, and personal unhappiness. After trying to overcome it by myself and get over it in this time, I've finally had enough of this deep weight that's always in the bottom of my belly, and I suppose that means I need professional help. But I don't know what kind of therapist/therapy I need, or even whether I do need it. Do lots of them deal with the same sort of problems, and use the same sort of methods? How do I know that the therapy is based in results and facts, and isn't secretly some kind of homeopathic alternative crap wash? Also, I am based in Amsterdam. I've already looked and there's a lot of services out there. Does anyone have any first hand experience, recommendations? Thanks for your time.
