Usually, at the end of this first session, or else, in your second session, your psychologist will discuss psychological test results and develop your unique treatment plan with you. Because we are eclectic in our approach to therapy, your psychologist will select interventions from the best possible evidence based therapies. Your psychologist will also use their knowledge of the research and treatment guidelines for your types of issues, and their experience to tell you the number of sessions you are likely to need to fully recover. Then, it’s up to you to decide whether you want to commit to the therapy process and this recommended treatment.
Some people find it helpful to think of therapy like filling a doctor’s prescription. Some people take the whole dose until it is finished and fully recover while others stop taking the prescribed medication as soon as they start to feel better. Which one are you? As much as we wish the case was different, your psychologist cannot wave a magic wand to make you fully recover instantly. If only this was the case! But recovery can happen with a bit of hard work from your psychologist and you and all it takes to start is your commitment to the therapy process. So what are you waiting for?
