My first session

At the first session you’ll receive an assessment. I won't expect you to leap into your deepest darkest secrets immediately although some people do. I'll need to know why you’re seeking therapy and your expectations of me.                                                                                I might ask: Have you attended therapy in the past?  Do you have any mental health issues in your family history? How is your home life? Do you have a history of suicidal ideation? Do you have a history of self-harm?
