Most people are unsure about what to expect when they meet with a psychologist. We don't need to know EVERYTHING about you in order to be of help. You don't need to answer or reveal anything that you don't want to. We have a set of specialist skills and years of experience which often means we're accurate at hypothesising what you may be feeling and thinking, but we can't read minds.
Psychological therapy is a talking treatment; it requires a conversation between two people with the aim of using the expertise of one and the experience of the other to help improve health and wellbeing, and realise potential.
If we believe that you do not require therapy or if we are not able or best placed to help you, we will discuss this with you and advise you of the alternatives if needed.
