First session

The first session is an assessment session, which lasts for 50 minutes. During the assessment (which can sometimes go over two sessions) the psychologist aims to develop an understanding of the difficulties being faced by the client. The psychologist does this by asking the client questions about their present circumstances and difficulties and also about past experiences and important events. The psychologist then discusses with the client what he or she hopes to achieve from therapy. Using these goals, the psychologist can develop a treatment plan collaboratively with the client.

Further sessions

Clients usually attend sessions once a week at a time that has been agreed upon by both client and psychologist. Each session lasts for 50 minutes. Depending on the nature of the client's issues, therapy can either be short-term or long-term. The treatment plan developed in the assessment session is regularly reviewed by the client and the psychologist and, if necessary, it is modified accordingly.
