Decision Making

Decision Making

Decision making is a cognitive process that involves choosing a course of action from multiple alternatives. It is a fundamental aspect of our daily lives, as we constantly make decisions, ranging from simple ones like choosing what to wear, to complex ones such as career choices, financial decisions, or moral dilemmas.

In psychology, decision making is often studied in relation to factors such as cognitive biases, risk assessment, probability estimation, and the influence of emotion on judgment. Problems with decision making can arise due to various factors such as stress, anxiety, information overload, lack of clear options, or the presence of too many choices (known as 'choice overload' or 'analysis paralysis').

Difficulties with decision making can also be a symptom of certain mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety disorders, and conditions associated with executive function deficits like ADHD. These individuals may find it hard to make decisions, often second-guessing themselves, or they may avoid decision-making tasks due to overwhelming anxiety.

Therapists and psychologists can support individuals facing decision-making challenges by helping them to understand their thought patterns and feelings around decisions, learn effective decision-making strategies, manage anxiety and stress, and improve their confidence in their ability to make decisions. This can lead to enhanced decision-making skills, reduced anxiety, and improved overall mental health.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
