The first visit to the psychologist, mostly patients, is stressed, nervous, and doesn't know how it will go and what they have to say. In this blog, we will be introducing information about the first visit to feel more comfortable in your first visit.
You must know that your first visit is the introduction visit which where it will be to learn more about you and the reason that makes you feel needed to see a psychologist. But the most important thing that you must know is you will never be pushed into talking about anything you feel uncomfortable about. In addition, not everyone comes to the therapy with a clear idea of what they're looking for and having a goal about what to achieve after going out from this journey, so it's okay if you don't, and it is so early to know that from the first session.
The main question that the patients think a lot about which is What my psychologist will ask me? In the first session, psychologists will start mainly by introducing themselves and their experiences and asking you to introduce yourself and the main reason you are here for and what you expect from the psychologist.
Finally, at the end of the session, you can ask your therapist about what plan he/she
will follow for your therapy, how many sessions you need, and if there is a way to
contact your psychologist if it's an emergency. In addition, if you are planning to visit
a psychologist and you feel nervous and have a lot of questions to ask, then write
it down, so you don't forget anything.
