"According to St. John of the Cross, the person wishing to advance toward perfection should “take care into whose hands he entrusts himself, for as the master is, so will the disciple be, and as the Father is so will be the son.” And further: “In addition to be learned and discreet a director should be experienced… If the spiritual director has no experience of the spiritual life, he will be incapable of leading into it souls whom God is calling to it, and he will not even understand them.” (CCC 2690)
A soul should be very careful with Direction, for St. Vincent Ferrer testifies with the Church that which a soul should obey a Spiritual Director in all things. A number of “modern” directors do not hold this obedience seriously and want not to be a Spiritual Director but a friend.
I suggest reading Ascent to Mount Carmel by St. John of the Cross; St. Theresa of Avila is a good author to look into as well. And bring these works into the Direction with your life testimony. Again keep in mind what the Catechism says, “take care…”. And again, obey.
