Further information

What happens at the first session?

During the first assessment appointment I will work with you to develop understanding of the difficulties you face, including what might have made you vulnerable to developing difficulties, what triggered the difficulties, and what is keeping these difficulties going.

Collaborative decisions about treatment and what approach to use would then follow from what the formulation indicates. This agreed initial plan will guide treatment and can be further worked on and refined as part of the process of therapy.
