What To Expect

We understand that our clients may feel nervous about attending their first appointment. We do our best to provide an environment that feels comfortable, welcoming and private. We prioritise building a trusting relationship and positive rapport with our clients from the outset.

When your referral is received by Bamford Psychology Service, Dr Catherine Bamford will match you to the Psychologist in the team that is the most suitable to provide you with the help that you need.

If your appointment is online, you will receive a link to the meeting the day before your appointment via email. If you are meeting your Psychologist in person, you will find that our clinic rooms are easily accessible, private and comfortable. You will be asked to complete a registration form with your personal details and provide brief information about your difficulties before your first appointment.

The assessment appointment and any follow up therapy appointments will last 55 minutes, unless otherwise stated.

In the initial assessment you will talk to your Psychologist about the issues you are experiencing. Your Psychologist will also ask you more general background questions, relating to your lifestyle, health, work and personal life.

If therapy is advised, following the assessment you will make a plan with your Psychologist regarding when the therapy will be take place and roughly how many sessions you may need.

Clients under the age of 18 will be asked to attend their initial appointment with a parent or guardian.

We are registered providers for a number of private health insurers for clients that wish to claim for their therapy sessions.

If you are paying for your appointment the cost will depend on the type of assessment and therapy you have and the Psychologist that you see. Please contact us for more details.

If you have any further questions about your appointment or what to expect, please get in touch.

Online Appointments

Many people choose to have their appointments online. Not only does this save you travel time and costs, but it can also be just as effective as face to face therapy, yet in the comfort of your own home. Most people feel comfortable speaking with their psychologist online, however sometimes people find that they feel more comfortable speaking with their psychologist in person, especially when talking about very sensitive or distressing information.

When considering online appointments, please make sure that you are able to speak in a location that is completely private, without interruption and that you have a good internet connection.
