What to Expect From Your First Session
You will first be welcomed by my reception staff and myself. I usually ask clients to complete some forms before coming to our session e.g., contact information and a Consent to Treatment Form.
When we meet, I will go over confidentiality and my responsibilities as a therapist and your responsibilities as a client such as keeping appointments. We will review billing processes. I encourage questions at any point.
Next we will discuss the issue you would like help with and explore the history of the issue. I will ask some questions about your personal history as well. We will explore treatment suggestions and frequency of sessions. Throughout this process I will provide support, ideas, and suggestions.
My goal is to help my clients feel comfortable with myself, the counselling process and feel that I understand their issues.
