Attuned Psychology Psychiatry


Freqently Asked Questions


What happens during and between therapy sessions?

We provide a safe, confidential space, carefully attuned to your needs, in which to develop an understanding of your struggles, and progress towards meeting and overcoming your difficulties. During the initial sessions your therapist will be working with you to explore a shared understanding of what has brought you to therapy, how this is impacting upon you and what you would like to be different. These initial ‘assessment’ sessions, will support you in determining where the focus of the work needs to be. If, after initial assessment, you decide to commence therapy, you will work with your therapist to decide upon goals for therapy. Working towards these goals may involve thinking and talking about your day-to-day life, your memories, thoughts, feelings, hopes and worries, etc. Your therapist may ask you to participate in exercises and practices tailored to help you with your difficulties.
