It takes courage to seek therapy/counselling. Very often the very issues, which bring us to therapy makes it difficult to start.
Therapy will help you to be more fully alive. During the process difficult and painful feelings may be brought to the fore whilst offering insight and ultimately relief of your pain.
Psychotherapy (& counselling) works best within the framework of regular once or twice weekly sessions (at a set time). However I understand that circumstances (such as work or family commitments) may sometimes make it difficult to attend sessions regularly. We will discuss this in the first session to find a frame that works for both of us.
A single session lasts 50 minutes, unless agreed otherwise.
How long will it take until I feel better?
You may not know how many sessions you need when you start therapy/counselling. We will discuss that in the first session as well.
Short-Term counselling has the ending in mind from the beginning. We will agree on a set number of sessions and a particular focus for the work. When you start out with therapy you may not know how many sessions you need. We will discuss that in the first session as well.
Long-Term therapy is open-ended and therefore less structured time wise. It offers the opportunity to work at a deeper level.
If you feel like ending therapy it is best practice to agree on an end (date) and work towards it rather than to end abruptly.
My fee is 80 € per session. Low cost places are available. You can either pay me cash an a weekly basis or pay a monthly bill via bank transfer.
I am issuing bills at the end of a calendar month.
Private health insurance sometimes refunds the costs of psychotherapy delivered by a ‚Heilpraktiker‘.
The ‚Heilpraktiker beschränkt auf das Gebiet der Psychotherapie‘, a qualification that allows opening a private practice in Germany, is regulated within the German health system. Having trained in the U.K. I obtained a license to work as a ‚Heilpraktiker beschränkt auf das Gebiet der Psychotherapie‘.
Confidentiality & Supervision
Sessions are confidential. No third party will be informed about what is discussed in the room except for supervision purposes.The work is professionally supervised but people are not identifiable in supervision sessions. Confidentiality does not apply however when you or others are at risk.
We will have no social contact outside the therapy room.
