During a session the therapist primarily focuses on the setting up of the relationship with you both to give you support and to understand better how you function in your world. Therapy is mainly done through talking but there are times when the therapist chooses to do certain interventions called experiments both to understand you better and to help you get better awareness of yourself and your situation. Such interventions are done only with your permission and only if you feel comfortable. In the case of young children and adolescents parents and other family members are sometimes asked to join in some sessions to get a better idea of the environment the child lives in.
