Do I have to prepare anything for my first session?

We will ask you to complete an assessment once you have booked your session. It's not mandatory but will definitely help both you and your therapist get a head start in your relationship so we recommend completing this to save time in the initial session.

You can find the assessment in your account, or there is also a link in your booking confirmation email.

The assessment contains three sections:

  • a space for you to let your therapist know more about what you'd like help with and any relevant history or treatment as well as what you'd like to achieve from therapy

  • two short standardised questionnaires about how you have been feeling over the last couple of weeks

Once you've completed your questionnaire it will be made available to your therapist for them to review.

It can also be a good idea to think about the questions you have for your therapist before your first session.

Therapists are trained at helping you talk about yourself, so it’s okay to just not know what you want from therapy, or what exactly is upsetting you.
