“Going To Therapy For The First Time? Here’s What To Expect.

Below is a recent promotional video the IACP  made at a recent conference explaining to prospective clients what they might expect from their first session of counselling/psychotherapy.

“Going To Therapy For The First Time? Here’s What To Expect.

“Perhaps you’re struggling with anxiety or depression. Or maybe you’re unhappy in your job, and need some guidance in figuring out what career will really make you happy.

If any of the above situations applies to your life, counselling/ psychotherapy could be helpful.   So what is stopping you?
