Therapy is a series of structured sessions with a psychologist with the goal of improving some aspect of your life. First appointments are about getting to know our clients; building an understanding of what they want to achieve, defining goals and addressing questions about therapy.
Based on learning and understanding our client’s experience, our psychologists will suggest a strategy to support progress towards agreed goals.
Typically, this involves devising personal coping methods that target current problems, and learning longer term strategies to help maintain the improvements achieved.
You will be in control at all times. Our goal is to help you make the changes you want.
