The first appointment is an initial assessment. It is an opportunity for us to begin to put together a picture of how things are for you, why and what you would like to be different.
We will ask you questions about when the problem started, how it fluctuates, things you may have tried before to deal with it, the effect it has on your life and work, and what thoughts and feelings you have about it.
We will discuss our understanding of your problem and aim to give you our recommendations on treatment options at the end of the appointment. We may give you some problem specific questionnaires to complete for the next appointment.
