First Appointment - No Need for Nerves
Visiting a Psychologist for the first time can be daunting. We understand that people often feel nervous about taking this step. It can help to remember a few points:

Psychological therapy isn’t usually how it is portrayed in the media. We use evidence-based strategies and interventions to help you overcome challenges and address the difficulties you have been experiencing.

We sometimes find that people postpone seeing a psychologist because they fear there is a stigma attached to seeking therapy. Our psychologists are non-judgemental and will work with you towards your recovery with respect and confidentiality. Your psychologist will discuss any limits to confidentiality with you during your session.

If you are still nervous before your appointment, you are welcome to give us a call. Our psychologists are happy to talk with you over the phone before you make an appointment.
