What happens during the first meeting?
Meeting: if the client decided not to remain confidential.
You present the problem that concerns you and get feedback from the psychologist. Together we understand the psychological problem: what do you want to change, what do you want to work on? The claim may change later.
The client and the psychologist decide if they want to work together and continue therapy together if needed.
The psychologist chooses the technique she will use to work with the client.
Privacy is the psychologist's most important point of ethics.
The first meeting lasts 40-50 minutes, the following meetings are 1 hour long.
If the problem is not urgent, meetings are held once a week. If the problem is really extreme, meetings are held once every two days.
The meetings are held online.
