What to expect in the first session

Attending your first session can be difficult but it is often the first step in making positive change. The initial session with Nasalifya is spent getting to know you as a person and understanding your life’s journey. This includes discussing your current challenges in the context of your personal strengths, life experiences, interests and hopes for the future. This is done at your pace in a private and safe environment. This process helps inform a collaborative understanding of your current difficulties and the factors that maintain them. These factors often become what future therapeutic session focus on. The therapeutic plan and goals are developed and adapted collaboratively with clients in order to be responsive to changes in life circumstances.
