Psychological consultations are (usually initial) sessions, in which we talk about your problem/s. If there are any clues for a disorder, I use psycho-diagnosis tools for psychological assessment and confirm it. Depending on the severity of the condition I recommend seeing a psychiatrist for further investigations or treatment prescription. If the problem you seek help for is beyond my field of competence I can recommend another colleague who has those competencies and can help you better reach your objectives.
Psychological consultations are also required after finishing treatment to check the evolution of the patient and if the benefits of therapy maintained.
