Our clients come to us with various issues and expectations. They are often not sure what kind of help and what specialist they need (a psychologist, a psychotherapist, a psychiatrist, a nutrition specialist or a coach). For that reason, the first or a couple of first meetings with the client is always an initial consultation. The goal of the initial consultation(s) is to get to know each other, define difficulties, define if and how we may support the client, propose the best matched methods of working.
As every initial action, the initial consultation is followed by further steps. Depending on the situation, the steps may include:
In turn, the psychologist discusses the possibilities offered by our team and advises the appropriate specialist. The therapist discusses also practical aspects of the suggested form of psychological help, such as the frequency and duration of meetings, costs or methods of canceling the sessions. The therapist also answers the questions the client may ask. Together they define issues to deal with during the upcoming meetings. It may happen, of course, that after the initial consultation the client decides not to enter into further psychotherapeutic work or that our team is not able to help the client in the issues they brought up. In such situation, the psychologist proposes other solutions to the client: names other specialists with appropriate expertise, aid centres and institutions, free aid centres, etc.
