What do I offer
In providing a safe environment and offering a willing listening attitude, I work collaboratively with you to understand the difficulties that affect your daily life. I offer open-ended psychoanalytic psychotherapy and time-limited, short-term focussed work, depending on your needs.
Understandably the intensity of psychotherapy depends on your needs as well as on your readiness. Therefore, during the initial assessment sessions, we will try to understand your presenting difficulties and to decide the most appropriate therapeutic approach. I will also discuss the practical arrangements, such as the frequency of therapy, fees, breaks and holidays. The assessment usually takes one session, occassionally it may take 2-3 sessions. Each session lasts 50 minutes.
Once we've decided to work together in therapy, we will find a mutually convenient time at the same time and on the same day each week, to begin our regular therapeutic work. This can be either face to face or online using FaceTime or Zoom.
As continuity and regularity are essential to the therapeutic process, I will commit myself to a regular weekly appointment with you, therefore, missed appointments or cancelled sessions will be charged in full, as this will enable me to reserve the usual weekly time for you.
In addition, I also offer psychoanalytic supervision to counsellors and therapists.
