What to Expect in Therapy with a Private Psychologist
Psychology can be thought about as a problem-solving exercise. During your initial appointment(s), a specialist psychologist will discuss your concerns, explore your situation and emotions, and examine any symptoms you may be experiencing.
After developing a thorough understanding of your situation and its impact on your life, your psychologist will create a bespoke treatment plan that provides you with the most effective solution to suit your needs. Your treatment plan will be unique to your case and can include both individual and group therapy options, family therapy and consultations with employers and education systems.
Therapy sessions involve working collaboratively on your goals and chipping away at the presenting problem(s) in order to improve your mood and any aspects of behaviour that you have identified as wanting to change.
Your psychologist will make a recommendation about the frequency of your psychological therapy sessions based on your individual circumstances. Often people attend on a weekly or fortnightly basis to start off with, gradually reducing the frequency of their sessions as they improve. After your first session, we recommend booking a series of therapy appointments to ensure you are able to consistently work towards reaching your goals.
