What should I expect from my first meeting with a psychotherapist?

By 1 Jun, 2016

The first session is a chance for the basics of an initial contract to be jointly agreed to. This generally relates to fees, confidentiality, meeting place and time, session regularity and length, and expected treatment outcomes and goals. This is also the chance for therapist and client to consider their ‘fit’, and to decide whether or not it makes sense to work together.
