Your options

Your options – My services:

Your options for consultations, therapy, couple therapy and self-development workshops for children and for adults.

Initial therapeutic consultation

The aim of the initial consultation is to talk about the reasons why you are seeking therapy and discuss the next steps.
This time is for you to think about and make a decision if you want to commit to regular sessions.
It is a mutual assessment for both of us to see if we can work together. You can find out more about the process of psychotherapy, the way I work and make a decision if this suits you, and I can learn more about your difficulties and expectations.
The initial session is usually more structured then therapy sessions.
I offer between 1 and 3 meetings and then offer a choice between short-term therapy and in-depth long-term therapy.

If we decide to continue we will clarify and agree on the goals you want to achieve during the therapy and discuss their achievability and commit to a therapeutic contract.

The therapeutic contract consists of:Your options

Time and place of therapy sessions
Length of therapy
Time and frequency of sessions
Fees
Cancellations
Contact between sessions
Ending of therapy
Confidentiality
Supervision
Information about the way the therapist works using Gestalt approach

From now on sessions will be yours and the process of self-discovery will begin. More information: FAQ 


Short-term therapy

Time-limited, focused on a particular problem type of therapy.
It is usually offered if you are facing a crisis/difficult life situation and are looking for better ways of coping or want to make specific changes in your life.

Usually between 10-12 sessions held once a week, each 50 minutes long.


Long-term therapy

Gives an opportunity for in-depth work, gaining more understanding of underlying patterns of your behaviour and working through internal conflicts/unresolved past issues.
Usually takes between 6 months to a couple of years. Sessions are held once a week at the agreed time.


  Couple therapy

Focuses on the problems existing in the relationship between two people and finding more constructive ways of dealing with them.
A relationship is the centre of attention of the therapy work, rather than individual issues of the partners. The therapist takes the role of an objective third part that helps identify and clarify problem areas, facilitates better communication, decide what changes are needed or consider alternative ways of handling problematic situations.
A consultation/assessment session is offered first and then 90 min sessions are held once a week at the agreed time.
