Psychotherapy takes place in a safe and confidential space. It is common for it to start with a consultation where you will discuss whether and how your treatment will continue. You can arrange to see your therapist once a week face-to-face or online. Or you can arrange to hold sessions more often, up to five times a week. Psychotherapists will encourage you to speak freely and help you notice patterns and hidden meanings in what you say or how you interact with other people.
