Hello. Although I am not a therapist, I recommend you find a therapist in your area that is willing to have you job shadow.

Samuel’s Answer

Greetings and salutations! My name is Samuel Colis Achiles. I am a recent graduate from California State University Dominguez Hills, with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology. Therapy sessions just happen to be one of many professions within this field.

Note that a therapy session is a problem-solving session. Your therapist will begin by asking you questions about your current situation(s), your feelings about it, how well you cope and react, etc. Then, depending on your answers, and after making proper judgments to address the issues at hand, your therapist will administer the “treatment” accordingly, depending on your issue(s).

The length of each therapy session depends on the needs of the patient, and what unknown variables are ascertained, and what kind of treatment will be administered.

That is all the advice that I can offer from my perspective. I hope this helps in answering your question. May I wish you well in your endeavors.

David’s Answer

A typical day for a therapist would depend on the setting that you work in. Most people are referring to outpatient settings when they think of therapists. In this case, you would normally schedule patients every 45 minutes to an hour. There is some paperwork involved with each session, including notes on the session as well as some kind of billing statement. In a typical private or small group outpatient office, therapists typically work mostly alone, though there may be some colleagues to speak with in between sessions and a person who does the billing. Larger practices or social service agencies may also have receptionists and clerical staff. In a private practice, the therapist does most of the scheduling on their own. I hope that you find this information helpful.
