What to expect

Many people feel anxious or apprehensive about their first meeting with a psychologist. Psychologists are trained to be empathic and respectful of your feelings about coming to therapy.

The first meeting with a psychologist is usually an opportunity for you to talk about what has brought you to them.

They may ask you some questions to get a better picture of what is happening in your life and establish your goals for the therapy or assessment process.

This meeting is an opportunity for you to ask questions and ensures you have sufficient information to make a decision moving forward.

Toward the end of the initial meeting, the psychologist will usually discuss their evaluation of your situation and their recommendations.

These recommendations may include further individual therapy, therapy for families or couples, further assessment, or appropriate referrals to other professionals.

Frequently asked questions

How can talking to a psychologist help me?

Psychologists assist people with everyday concerns such as stress, relationship difficulties, and mental health issues.

Therapy offers a safe space where you can look closely at the challenges you are experiencing and develop skills to cope with difficulties and prevent ongoing issues.

Everyone's experience with therapy is different.

Some people come to see a psychologist to develop coping strategies to reduce or manage symptoms of mental illness.

Others come to therapy to understand patterns in their relationships and behaviours or to receive ongoing support.

Psychologists can work with you to process traumatic or stressful situations such as divorce, job loss, grief, and criminal activities.
