When you come for your first appointment, the therapist will ask you what brought you here and what symptoms you are experiencing. You can tell the therapist whatever you think they will need to know to be able to help. The therapist will listen and answer any questions you might have. By the end of the first session you will have a better understanding about how the therapeutic relationship will work and what type of treatment you will receive.
Together, you and your therapist will develop a treatment plan and jointly decide how often you will meet, what time will be most suitable, and what other information might be needed.
