At the start of your first session, your Central Coast Speech Pathologist 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 your support. If you have been referred by a third party or have a medical referral this will be discussed.

The rest of the session our Speech Pathologist will spend time understanding your situation, concerns and what you would like to achieve. Sometimes people are concerned about what to say but please know your psychologist will know what questions to ask to get the relevant information to form a good platform to work from.

It is important to understand that there is no “typical” session and there are a range of different approaches we will use that are tailored to your specific concerns and situation.
