Your First Therapy Session
During the first session with your therapist at Positive Circles, they gather information about you and how they can help you become your best.
It might take a few sessions for your therapists to fully understand your situation and determine the solution-building approach or the best course of action to employ in helping you.
During these sessions, you may be asked to fill out forms about your current and past physical and emotional health.
Please, do not hesitate to ask questions anytime during your appointment and get instant answers and clarification.
Starting Therapy Sessions
You’ll likely meet with Heather Picart once a week or every other week for your sessions. Appointments are 50 minutes long, allowing 10 minutes between appointments to attend to your file.
During Your Therapy Sessions
Clinical therapist Heather Picart will encourage you to talk about your thoughts and feelings and what’s troubling you. You do not have to worry if you find it hard to be open about your feelings. She can help you gain more confidence and become more comfortable as time goes on.
We understand that your sessions sometimes involve intense emotional discussions. While you may occasionally feel upset or physically exhausted, we are here to help you cope with such feelings and emotions.
Also, you may be asked to do “homework” — activities or practices that build on what you learn during your regular therapy sessions. Over time, discussing your concerns can help improve your mood, change how you think and feel about yourself, and improve your ability to cope with problems.
All your conversations and case notes are confidential except where required by law or court order. Positive Circles is required by law to report to the appropriate authorities if there is physical or sexual abuse of a child under 18 or to believe a person’s life is in jeopardy.
Required Number of Sessions
The number of treatment sessions you need — as well as how frequently you need to see your therapist — depends on these factors:
- Severity of your challenges
- How long you’ve been dealing with your situation
- How quickly you make progress
- How much stress you’re experiencing
- How much your health concerns interfere with day-to-day life
- How much support do you receive from family members and others
- Budget and insurance limitations
It may take only weeks to help you cope with a short-term situation. However, the treatment may last several months if you have a long-term mental illness or other concerns.
