Information for Adolescents
Do you tell anyone what happens in sessions?
What is discussed in your therapy sessions remains confidential between us. The only time I would need to disclose information from sessions to anyone else is if I was concerned that you or someone else was in danger of being hurt or harmed in any way. If I felt I needed to disclose any information I would let you know first so we could think about it together.
How often do I have to come?
Usually therapy is at the same time, on the same day each week. Coming regularly enables therapy to work best. In some cases it may be helpful to come 2x a week but most people start off coming once a week and continue this way.
How long are the sessions?
They are 50 minutes.
How long will I have to come for?
It is different for each person. Some people come for a few weeks, others for a few months or longer. We work this out and think about this together.
What happens in the sessions?
The therapy room has different art resources and materials that are here for you to use. This does not mean that you need to be good at art or music or drawing, they are here purely as another way to express how you feel in addition to words.
