​Defining a pattern over a simple assertion is kinda strange​. '[' & ']'
are useless here, since you are not matching several symbols.
Use (?<session_value>\w+) and you should be all set.

Btw, if you were to use '+', [\w+] and [\w]+ have different meaning: first
quantifier applies to '\w' only while latter applies to all the symbols in
the pattern.
