Before Your First Visit
Upon making an appointment, you will be provided with some paperwork to complete. Please bring this completed paperwork with you to your initial appointment. If you have not had an opportunity to complete this paperwork or you have not received it by mail, please arrive 10-15 minutes early to complete the paperwork. If you have a referral from your GP, please bring it with you.

The first session typically begins with learning about your psychologist and policies and procedures, such as confidentiality and privacy. Your psychologist will conduct a psychological assessment, which involves talking about the reason for your visit, your current life situation, difficulties and any related factors and history. This is important to enable her to work with you to create the most effective and efficient treatment plan for your personal situation. Typically, in the first session your psychologist will also work with you to create goals for therapy. The assessment usually fills your first and second visit. This is also a good opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
Following the psychological assessment, your psychologist will be able to decide which therapeutic modality is most suitable for you and your experience. Your psychologist will work with you to devise a plan that best meets your needs and will help you to achieve your goals for therapy.
