HOW CAN WE HELP - OUR FIRST THERAPY SESSION

The first session is about gathering information. It might take a few sessions to fully understand your situation and concerns, and to determine the best course of action. During assessment you will be asked for:

  • Basic personal information

  • A history of your physical, emotional and mental health together with your experience of medication

  • Information pertaining to potential risks

  • Information regarding previous therapy you may have engaged in

  • Family history

  • Current life circumstances

  • Supportive factors

  • Other relevant areas that may arise

The 1st session and initial assessment is about getting information but also about achieving some understanding. The assessment process may take a number of weeks and will naturally lead to a goal list which will serve as a template for the broad direction of future sessions.
