What to expect from an initial 15-minute phone consultation?
The initial consultation helps us to get a better insight of your struggle and the specific need and also to determine if we would be a good fit. We explore briefly why you are seeking therapy and answer any questions you might have regarding the treatment. Read more about our approach here.
What are therapy sessions like?
Individual sessions. You and your therapist will usually set an agenda for each meeting. The agenda might include a review of your experience in the previous session, your homework, one or two current problems, a review of what you’ve accomplished in this session, and homework for the next week. The focus of therapy is on how you are thinking (your “cognitions”), behaving, and communicating today, however, we also explore some early experiences to gain an insight of how these experiences might impact your life and learn how to develop a different relationship to these (often old) thoughts, feelings, memories and physical sensations. You should feel free to give your therapist feedback on your progress. This feedback from you is useful in order to figure out what works and what doesn’t work.
