At the beginning of the session your psychologist will briefly run through important paperwork with you. This will include a brief information form for you to complete, a consent form (covering issues such as confidentiality and fees), and other important information about sessions. If you have been referred by a third party or have a medical referral this will be discussed.

The remainder of the session will be talking about why you have come to therapy, your concerns, personal circumstances, challenges and what you would like to get from therapy. Sometimes people are worried about what to say but rest assured your psychologist will know what questions to ask to get the relevant information to help you.

There is no “typical” therapy session as there are different methods of treatment for different concerns.
