Your first appointment is an Assessment session. It will last between 55 to 90 minutes. Here we will discuss your presenting problems and develop a formulation of your difficulties. A formulation is an understanding of your difficulties, like putting all the pieces of the puzzle together to make sense of it. It is trying to make sense of how your difficulties developed, why are they happening and how they are maintained. Sometimes more than one 55 minutes assessment session is needed.
After the assessment session/s and once you have decided that you want to work together therapy sessions last 55 minutes.
It is important to commit to therapy and attend all the sessions for therapy to work effectively. If you need to cancel an appointment please do so 24 hours in advance or there will be a charge.
