We understand that seeing a psychologist for the first time can feel daunting, so our priority initially is ensure our clients feel comfortable. During your initial session your psychologist will try to get a good understanding of your concerns and your goals for therapy. Your psychologist will provide feedback and recommendations for the treatment approaches that are likely to be effective and the number of sessions you might require to see improvements. We understand the importance of ‘fit’, so you will have opportunities to ask questions and determine whether your psychologist is right for you. Some clients feel ready to make another appointment at the end of the first consultation, and others prefer to think about it. Our goal is that you leave the appointment feeling respected and understood, with a good idea of what your therapy options are and a sense of confidence in your psychologist’s ability to help you make positive changes.
