The first session or two is normally a time for the Psychologist to gather information about your physical and mental health history, evaluate your situation and work with you to develop a treatment plan.
The Psychologist will give you time to:
- Discuss the issues which concern you.
- Get to know how you think and react to problems.
- Explore your thoughts, emotions and behaviour.
- Get to know your own strengths and personal support system.
Get a sense of what kind of interventions may be needed for you to feel more healthy.
