When we meet the first time we are starting to get to know each other. The first counseling session, the interview is for you to present your story, your life and your actual problem. This is also aiming at deciding whether we (I as a therapist and you as client) fit together and whether counselling or psychotherapy is the adequate help for you.
If you are interested in your actual psycholgical state, your mental fittness or I see that it is essential to use some tests, we set a time for a testing session, where you complete standardized psychological tests, questionaires. On the basis of the results decision is made together on our cooperation.
