Video & audio overview of the template

What is the theory behind the template?

Gathering information from your client such as a rating can be useful to understand how they are feeling about the process and the session. 

If you would like to use an actual psychometric assessment you can investigate the use of the Session Rating Scale. Otherwise, this template offers a more informal method of evaluating a session.

You may wish to add this information to your therapy notes and case reflections.

How will the template help?

This template provides an informal tool for a client to evaluate a session’s value to them. This can offer more opportunity to adjust the approach to one that fits the client.

Deciding when to use this tool will be important as it will not be beneficial for all clients or all sessions.

How to use the template?

Consider your clients carefully as asking them to evaluate each session may not be effective or valuable to some clients. They may feel pressured to give you high ratings depending on their process and personality.

If you choose to use this template, encourage your client to be honest and feel safe in sharing their feelings.
