Your First Step: What to Expect at Your Initial Session

As we commence our journey through Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP), it's important to know that this process is gradual and adaptable to your pace. In your first session, guided by Brian Goldstein, we will not immediately delve into traumatic details. Instead, our focus will be on creating a safe and trusting environment.

Here's what you can expect during your initial session:

  • Creating a Safe Space: The primary goal of our first session together is to establish a sense of safety and build a trusting relationship. Your comfort and security in this therapeutic space are paramount.
  • Understanding Your Story: I will invite you to share what led you to seek therapy and what you hope to achieve. This conversation will help me understand your goals and expectations, enabling me to tailor the therapy to your needs.
  • Respectful Information Gathering: I will ask questions about your background and experiences, always with the utmost respect and consideration for your comfort and boundaries. This information will shape your personalized therapy plan.
  • Introducing Sensorimotor Therapy: You will receive detailed information about sensorimotor therapy, including an overview of what to expect as we progress. This will demystify the process and prepare you for our journey together.
  • Starting Body Awareness Work: We may begin with initial body awareness exercises designed to help you connect with your body's sensations and responses, a crucial aspect of SP.

Remember, this first session is just the beginning of our journey. It lays the foundation for our therapeutic work together, designed to be a comfortable and informative experience in alignment with the gentle and client-paced nature of sensorimotor psychotherapy. We invite you to take this step toward healing and growth.
