What to expect



"If you have never attended a clinical psychologist before you might be a bit apprehensive and not sure what to expect. A lot people feel this way. Let me try and reassure you, if I can, by telling you a little bit about what to expect. At our first appointment we will meet for approximately ninety minutes and I will ask some questions to understand what’s troubling you. I may also ask you to complete some specialised questionnaires to help me to better understand how you are feeling. At the end of our first appointment it should be clear as to the best way forward. If it seems that I can help then we can discuss whether you would like to attend for a course of therapy. This would typically mean meeting for a number of sessions of focused psychological therapy aimed at overcoming the problems identified."
