What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy and counseling are terms that are often used interchangeably. It is a process of setting goals to improve an aspect of life that is causing distress. Therapy should help provide insight, understanding, and action steps to assist with change. Psychotherapy should serve to provide an increased feeling of well-being.
What should I expect when I come to therapy?
Your first appointment will focus on your therapist getting to know about you, the problems you are experiencing, and the history of those problems. Along with this assessment a treatment plan of goals will be established. Although you can expect the therapist to be asking a lot of questions, as a client, you should ask any questions that are on your mind, or will help to put you at ease about the therapeutic process.
