What to expect at your first counselling session

Consultations with psychologists usually last for approximately one hour.

During the first session your psychologist will discuss with you issues of and limits to confidentiality.

The aim of the first session is to gather information that will inform a plan for treatment.

Given this, your psychologist will need to ask some questions; perhaps relating to how you came to be referred to the service, the issue or issues that currently concern you and what you hope to achieve from counselling.

Throughout the discussion you may say as much or as little about issues as you feel comfortable.

A focus for treatment may be developed at the end of the first session, or may take several sessions depending on the nature and complexity of the issues concerned.
