PTSD Counselling MeridaHow does PTSD Counselling Merida at Cambio TC work?

1. 30-Minute First Session

Psychotherapy and Counselling here at Cambio TC begins with a 30 minute discovery session with our psychologist. In these 30 minutes, we will ask important questions to determine the nature of the problem and begin to determine the right treatment approach needed to increase your self-esteem and self-worth. We’re also asking questions to get a better sense of your personality.

We believe the discovery session is very important so you and the psychologist can find out if there is a 'good fit'. The consultation is also a great time to address any questions and concerns you may have.

‍2. 50-Minute Weekly Sessions

‍After the discvoery session, clients attend sessions online or at our clinic on a weekly basis with our therapist. At this point, our objective is to work through the treatment plan, and goals set in your initial consultation. All sessions our therapy sessions are 50 minutes long.

‍3. Finish and Evaluate

‍After completing the recommended program, we check in for another consultation appointment to check in on what your experience was like. If you’re still struggling (and everyone takes a different amount of time to work through issues), we may recommend continued therapy to keep you on the right track. If you’re feeling like you’ve made significant improvement in your issues, your weekly therapy ends here. We will likely give you reading materials to help you along the way and you’re welcome to come back for a check-in session at any time.
