In the initial session, we first focus on understanding the reasons that led you to make the appointment. This involves an assessment process, where you can tell your story and get your concerns “off your chest”. It also includes a series of questions from the psychologist about your past and present, which will help in understanding your current situation. The psychologist will also seek to understand what you want to achieve from the counselling process. Subsequent sessions are usually on a fortnightly basis and become less frequent as your difficulties are resolved.
