Why do people go to therapy?
What to expect
The first two to three sessions always consist of a comprehensive assessment of your current functioning.
This comprises collecting information pertaining (but not limited) to your personal history, medical history, and past family experiences. The assessment stage is vital to building the therapeutic relationship, which is the cornerstone of successful, effective therapy. Its purpose is to ensure that we form a collaborative understanding of what is happening for you at this time in your life, which will then inform how we proceed with any necessary intervention.
The length of therapy depends on a variety of factors and can range from short-term to long-term interventions. As with most things in life, what you put into therapy is related to what you will achieve. While a therapist may facilitate change, at the end of the day, you are the agent who will take responsibility for it.
