What do practising psychologists do?
Who is a psychologist?
A psychologist is a specialist who has completed at least a master's degree. During the studies, the knowledge related to human development, thinking, emotions, relationships, communication is accumulated, which helps to understand human nature better. She/he also continuously deepens the knowledge by participating in various training, conferences, congresses, or continuing with doctoral or postgraduate studies to become a psychologist - psychotherapist.The psychologist also follows the principle of confidentiality. During the consultation, she/he seeks to create a supportive, open and accepting relationship that would allow you to feel safe and as a result - open up to discover ways to deal with difficulties.
Balance groups explained
What to expect during meetings with a group led by a psychologist
Sharing in a group inevitably triggers reactions from other group members to the thoughts, feelings and actions expressed. The reactions of others can help you to understand yourself and your relationships with other people better, to see situations and your role in them more realistically. The group can be a mirror in which to see one's own relationships with people. It is also a group of people who share similar experiences or current life situations, goals... Here you can feel you are not alone, you can get support, encouragement or at least be listened to.
Of course, the whole group experience is surrounded by confidentiality and respect for each other's unique presence in the group.
How to prepare for the first consultation
It is normal to be worried before the consultation, especially if it's your first meeting. Praise yourself for your determination to talk - sharing your inner world with a stranger requires courage. Let's try to prepare for the conversation together, both emotionally and practically.
.Choose a private space where you can feel cosy, safe and comfortable throughout the conversation.
.Take a few minutes before and after the conversation - this will allow you to concentrate and calmly reflect on your experience.
.Check if you have a stable internet connection. In case your WiFi drops and you loose internet connection, be prepared for a backup option, e.g. connect to the internet using a mobile phone.
.Make sure your camera, microphone, and headphones are working.
