first time polygraph and probation

I have to take a polygraph (for the first time in my case) as part of a sex offender evaluation which is one of the terms of my year's probation. When I made the appointment, the polygrapher told me that one copy of my results would be sent to my psychologist and one would be sent to the probation officer. I have just one question... if I were to fail the polygraph, how would this affect my probation or is this so the psychologist can advise the probation on what and how much treatment they want to give me.

The last thing you want to do is fail a SO-related polygraph, whether it is a maintenance one or a history one. Many places now"consequence" you to give you an incentive to be nondeceptive. Some of the repercussions include extra counseling classes (although you sound like you are in a one-on-one setting), being moved into a group home, performing community service, having privileges taken away, having other things taken away (e.g., home computer), being placed on an ankle bracelet monitoring program (or a pager-based variation), and well, the list goes on. I've seen probationers have to move out of their own house and not have contact with their wives until the wife attended couples counseling. The big bonus one though is having your probation extended. Believe me when I say: you really don't want to fail.

Thanks for the response, though very scary. I can tell you it my offense was a public indecency charge and that I have cooperated 100% from the beginning with everyone, paid the probation in full ahead of time, scheduled and began the sex evaluation right away, and scheduled the required polygraph  which is for this week. I was given one year's probation, no jail time, paid a fine and was required to have the evaluation done. I was just concerned when told the results of the polygraph would be reported to the psychologist as well as the probation officer, which concerned me. Though the psychologist did say the passing or failing of the polygraph would have to do with the amount of "treatment" etc.
