During the first session, the psychologist will conduct an intake assessment, where the psychologist will enquire about the client’s concerns, as well as relevant background/history. This might include information about their family, social relationships, work history or past counselling visits. Be rest assured that this information will be kept confidential, and that therapy will take place in a safe, private and non-judgmental space for the client to air their concerns.
After gathering this information, the psychologist will then bring the client through on what they can expect for future sessions. They will do this by working with the client to craft a collaborative and flexible plan for future therapy sessions. The client can bring along a notepad to record these and other useful discussions that occur during the session.
