The first session

At the first session I will spend some time getting to know you, and we will talk about what brings you into therapy and to get a brief understanding of your background and past. It is necessary to have an account of the past as it will help to inform the present. In order for me to support you in the best possible way it would be helpful that I get to know what are your; past traumas, ability to deal with change and conflict, brief family history, areas of invalidation, success, strengths, fears, drug use history, relationships, etc.
