Seeking Support - FAQs
What can I expect during my first visit?
During your first visit, the psychologist will typically discuss your concerns, gather some background information, and work with you to establish goals for therapy, ensuring a safe and confidential environment for you to express yourself.
How often will I need to see a psychologist?
The frequency of sessions will depend on your individual needs and the nature of your concerns. Some people benefit from weekly sessions, while others may need less frequent visits. Your psychologist will discuss this with you and develop a tailored treatment plan.
Is everything I share with my psychologist confidential?
Yes, confidentiality is a cornerstone of therapy. Psychologists are ethically bound to keep your information private, with a few exceptions related to harm to self or others, abuse, or court orders.
How do I know if a psychologist is the right fit for me?
It’s important to feel comfortable with your psychologist. During initial sessions, consider whether you feel heard, understood, and respected. Don’t hesitate to discuss any concerns or consider seeking a different psychologist if the fit doesn’t feel right.
