What is the first session going to be like?

In a typical first session, your therapist will begin the formal intake” process with you. It will often start with a review of a therapy consent form, where things like the style of therapy provided, the rules around confidentiality and the limits thereof are addressed. Clinic policies and payment terms are also agreed to. Therapists then usually begin by asking you questions to help them get an idea of the main challenges you are currently facing, and your personal history. The final step of an intake is often the creation of a preliminary treatment plan. If you have a particularly complex personal history, the formal intake may continue on into the second session.
