The first appointment with a psychology is always a bit anxiety provoking - it can be helpful to know what to expect.
In our first appointment, I aim to find out what I can about the reasons that led you to seek out support, as well as other information about your lifestyle and social context. Together, we can agree on a treatment timeline and identify some specific goals.
Research suggests that the best outcomes for recovery are when people can attend psychological sessions weekly or fortnightly. I strive to offer clients regular appointments, especially at time of crisis. Clients in remission sometimes book in for less frequent sessions, as follow-up.
Treatment time may vary depending on your needs, however I aim to achieve specific goals within the initial 10 sessions.
I have experience in treating a range of mental health difficulties, such as mood disorders (such as Depression, Bipolar), anxiety disorders (including Phobias, Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalised Anxiety Disorder), PTSD and trauma, and grief.
I find that I work well with people across the lifespan, although I do not currently accept referrals for children (under age 16).
I provide a range of therapies based on evidence and your needs and goals. These therapies include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. I am happy to provide you with information about these, if you have any questions.
