First Session

 

In the first session you will meet your counsellor for the first time.  Sessions last for 50 minutes, and take place in a quiet room with just two of you present.  A number of things will be covered such as confidentiality and session timings.

 

Your counsellor will ask you questions that will help them to understand your surface problem(s) before they can explore any deeper issues.

 

Some questions asked may include:

  • Why you sought therapy
  • Your personal history and current situation
  • Your family history

Making the decision to attend counselling is a positive step and can offer support beyond that available from family or friends.
