What to expect at the initial appointment

The first appointment is your opportunity to meet with your psychologist or therapist for an initial assessment. This can last between an hour and an hour and a half. During this time we will find out more about what it is that is causing you difficulty, ask for some background history and identify some goals for therapy.  It is also a time for you to ask us any questions you have about the therapy, our practice or the problems you are experiencing.  

This initial appointment enables us to identify the most effective type of therapy for you and outline what you can expect from us and the therapy. We can also give you an idea of the duration and cost of therapy. If you know what you would like help with and wish to get an idea of the number of sessions considered appropriate in addition to discussing this with your psychologist you can visit the NICE (the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) website at
