The aim of therapy is to work collaboratively with the client to increase their understanding of themselves and address areas of concern in a meaningful yet timely manner. The process aims to increase the client’s understanding and awareness of their current difficulties, and to help them to learn strategies that will enable them to overcome areas of difficulty and work towards improving their overall quality of life.

The initial session typically involves a clinical assessment, where information is collected on the nature of the client’s current difficulties and relevant history, as well as the administration of questionnaires regarding current functioning.  By the end of the first session, the client and your psychologist will have a clearer understanding of the nature of the client’s current difficulties and contributing factors, and will have developed a therapy plan which includes therapy goals, the treatment approach, and the number of sessions required.

Therapy sessions typically last 50-60 minutes and occur at a frequency determined by the client and your psychologist, usually weekly. The number of treatment sessions that will be required depends on the unique circumstances of each client. Therapy typically involves the completion of in-between session tasks (known as homework), that aims to increase the benefits of therapy.
