what should i expect? it's my first time and im kinda scared
they will ask u quite a few questions, but this is just to get an idea about you, try to be as open and honest as you can, and remember they only want to help you :hug:
the first visit conversation is usually more generalized. they just want to get to know you and know the basic reason you are seeking help.
My biggest piece of advice is don't give up on therapy if you don't end up liking this doctor. Not everyone is a good match and you just have to keep trying until you find one you work well with.
Exactly - don't give up because you don't get along with one psych. for one reason or another. You WILL find someone who can help you if you keep looking, so don't give up!
And yes, expect questions. Possibly a lot of them.
I would advise trying to write down how you're feeling, or your thoughts about particular issues that you may have, before the session. This can sometimes makes it easier to describe how your feeling.
The first time they usually ask you some basic questions, then they try to get to know you.
If you don't like the therapist, or it's not working, you should either see another one, or try different things.
