What to expect
During the first session your psychologist will provide you with information about confidentiality and consent. Your psychologist will discuss your reasons for wanting to attend therapy and then together you will develop goals for treatment. Some first sessions may last for 1.5 hours and all future sessions will go for 1 hour. At the end of the first session you will be asked for feedback on how well your therapist has listened to you and understood your concerns.
