At the beginning of a psychotherapy session, the therapist will typically start by introducing themselves and asking a few questions. These questions are designed to get to know you better and to help the therapist learn more about the issues you are facing. The therapist will then likely ask you to explain your current situation and the issues that you would like to address in the session.

  1. Greeting and Introduction: When you arrive for your psychotherapy session, you can expect to be greeted warmly by your therapist and introduced to the therapeutic environment.
  2. Initial Assessment: Your therapist will ask questions about your current mental and emotional state, any history of mental health issues, and your goals for the therapy session.
  3. Setting Goals: Together, you and your therapist will set goals for the session and come up with an action plan to help you reach those goals.
  4. Open Discussions: During the session, you will have the opportunity to openly discuss your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with your therapist.
  5. Active Listening: Your therapist will be actively listening to you and will provide feedback and guidance to help you work through your issues.
  6. Self-Reflection: Your therapist may also encourage you to practice self-reflection to gain insight into your thoughts and feelings. Get more info, visit here


  • Reflection and Processing: At the end of the session, your therapist will provide a summary of what was discussed and help you process the information.
  • Homework: Your therapist may also provide homework to help you continue to work on your goals and progress between sessions.
  • Making an Appointment: If you decide to continue with therapy, you and your therapist will make an appointment for your next session. During the session, your therapist will ask about your progress and any challenges you have faced since your last appointment. Together, you and your therapist will work to determine how to best address your needs and work towards your goals.
  • Follow-up Appointments: You will also likely have follow-up appointments to check in on your progress and adjust your goals and treatment plan as needed. Follow-up appointments are important to ensure that your treatment plan is effective and that your health and wellbeing are improving. During follow-up appointments, your therapist will review your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
