The purpose of this meeting will be to undertake a comprehensive review of any problems you might be encountering and to develop a plan of treatment to meet your needs. For complex issues, a second assessment might be necessary to complete the initial assessment.
The first meeting normally consists of a discussion focussed on your particular problems. In conversation, we will try to understand your current problems in the context of your life story, looking at how you interact with your family, friends and the world in general.
You may need to have a physical examination, blood tests or further investigations if deemed necessary.
