NEW TO THERAPY: WHAT TO EXPECT
Whether this is your first time seeking someone to speak to about current concerns, or you’ve decided to continue growing within a supportive therapeutic relationship, I welcome you to ExpatTherapyBarcelona.
Therapy is an active process that is grounded in respect, honest communication and trust. This combination is the key to working and growing towards the change you seek.
Here are some things to expect from our initial session and subsequent sessions:
Our first visit will be a time to get to know each other. We will discuss your rights as a client, confidentiality and discuss any concerns regarding the therapeutic process.
When we first meet you will sign a consent to treatment and a confidentiality agreement form, as well as a safety contract and late cancellation policy agreement.
We will explore the issues, history and concerns that brought you here. The goals that you would like to achieve and the way in which you would like to create change in your life.
We'll begin to expand on possible solutions utilizing already existing resources and begin to prioritize methodologies, therapeutic techniques, approaches, skills and tools that will facilitate the process of transformation.
From that moment on, and if we feel we're a good fit for each other, sessions will be focused on talk and experiential therapeutic practices that work towards the desired goals and outcomes.
Sessions are 50-55 minutes long and are held within a comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and safe office in Barcelona.
