In your final session, your psychologist will review all of the gains you have made and all of the tools you have learned. It is also usually helpful to check in with you about your feelings about ending therapy.
You and your psychologist will discuss if you would like to set up any maintenance sessions for the future. If these maintenance sessions do not seem necessary, you are always welcome to contact your psychologist for a follow-up appointment at any time.
You will end therapy with a set of tools, in writing if preferred, to use at any time in the near or distant future. Our goal is to prevent a re-occurrence or relapse of the problem that brought you into therapy. Sometimes relapses in the future do occur. As a result of your therapy, however, the length and intensity of that relapse, should it occur, should be minimized.
