The First Session
In the first session, I am seeking to establish what kind of person you are and why you are wanting sessions.
I'll be writing a lot of things down, so I might be looking away some times, and that only happens in the first session. It's important to do that so that I have the synopsis as the reminder for myself to refer to between sessions when I'm thinking about you.
We will talk about what has been happening and I will ask you what outcomes you want.
You should get a feeling of hope and optimism at the end of the first session. And if you have felt understood, you should know that we are on the right track.
