What Happens During A Therapy Session?
You will usually have a number of planned, regular sessions lasting for around 50 minutes. How often you see your therapist, and how many sessions you have, will depend on your individual circumstances. Every therapist has their own way of beginning therapy. They may start by talking about what will happen in your therapy or they may begin straightaway by asking you what is troubling you. Either way is fine, but there are a few things your first session will cover:
Your therapist should spend a few minutes introducing themselves. If you’re not sure whether to call them by their first name or to be more formal, just do what you feel most comfortable with.
Your therapist may start by taking a history of the troubles you are experiencing. They might ask you to complete some forms, or go through information they have received about you, for example a letter from your GP.
Your therapist should explain how they will protect your confidentiality and privacy. Therapists will usually take notes of the sessions in some way for their own professional use.
