Each session lasts 60 minutes and is usually held on a weekly basis depending on the capabilities and therapeutic request of each patient. The treatment context is important to be consistent. Therefore the day, time and frequency of the sessions are pre-agreed and remain as consistent as possible, unless of course there are reasons of rescheduling the appointments either by the therapist or the patient.
Ensuring confidentiality is crucial in a person's collaboration with a mental health professional. In your cooperation with the specialist there will be complete confidentiality and no information will be leaked to third parties. Leakage of information is unacceptable and unlikely as therapists are bound by the code of professional conduct to ensure absolute and secure confidentiality.
Many times we are in front of obstacles for the first time in our lives, which make it particularly difficult for us to realize that successful strategies for solving our problems are proving to be completely inadequate. Then we feel great despair and frustration. In some other cases, it is not a dramatic event or crisis that makes us want to see our life in a different way. There comes a time when we decide that it is finally time to look more clearly and face in person, difficulties and negative emotions that have accompanied us for a long time but we have always postponed solving them. In any case, when we are in front of a period of personal or family crisis, or in front of the desire to know and improve ourselves, a skilled psychologist can become a companion and stimulate the individual's journey to openness, relief from symptoms, and self-realization.
There are no objective rules regarding the beginning of a therapy with the specialist. Usually most people feel that they are at a point in their lives where they find it difficult to deal with certain situations. They feel that they have reached a low point, that everything is in vain, that they are alone without any social network around them and many others might facing painful and intense emotions that they can not manage on their own.
An advice from a good friend is certainly helpful and supportive, yet an session with a psychologist it is therapeutic. Many times a friend can give unintentionally a wrong advice just because he can not give something more. The psychologist can help you to find out more about your problems and worries and to identify the causes.
