- We have one meeting of 30-45 minutes to get acquainted. This meeting is for free. If both of us say "Yes" the therapy starts. - I ask you to write about your life, everything which comes to mind and seems relevant for the issue(s) which brought you to me. I read it and meditate on it. - In our first therapy session I may have questions related to your life, and I would like to know more about certain events you describe. We also talk in more detail / depth about your goal(s) - what would you like to achieve. Again I meditate on all the information I received so far, and make a treatment plan. - In our second session I present you the plan. The plan gives a direction for the sessions and an idea which means are necessary to achieve the goal(s) The plan is malleable, it can be adjusted. - In our third session we start the work. The further trajectory depends on your issue(s) and your goal(s). I find it important that you send regularly up dates and stay in close contact with me. Mostly I give you home work to do. The home work may include breathing and movement exercises, journaling, drawing, and changes in your habits and activities. Sometimes I recommend books to read/videos to watch, to expand your cognitive framework. The fees are for the sessions, correspondence between sessions is part of the therapy and I do not charge extra.
