During your first session you have the opportunity to evaluate your current situation with your Counsellor.
This is primarily done by the asking of some questions to help you clarify and describe your issues. Some clients have a detailed picture or idea of the area where they would like to achieve change, while other clients may be starting to explore difficult issues for the first time in their lives.
You also have the opportunity to fill out several questionnaires allowing us to evaluate levels of depression, anxiety, functioning & well-being. The standard outcome of an Intake session includes an estimated duration (number of sessions) of therapy and an informed consent about treatment options.
Counselling services at Counselling Madrid are in accordance with the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) code of ethics which means we are ethically committed to confidentiality. We encourage you to discuss any concerns you might have regarding confidentiality with your therapist.
