The purpose of the first meeting, often referred to as first interview, is to get to know each other and to decide whether we can imagine working together. Possibly it will extend to a second appointment. We will discuss expectations,
current life situation, realistic goals, fears, and other related topics.
This is also the opportunity for me to present myself and the way I am working with my clients. Then we could decide if there is a match for us to be working together.
The first one or two meetings are offered free of charge in order to enable you to have firsthand impression whether working with me is something you can profit from.
As a psychotherapist in training under supervision, I am obliged to keep all content fully confidential.
Length and frequency of meetings, as well as the mean of communication (online or in person), is to be decided individually. For psychotherapy to be effective, I recommend frequency of at least twice a week. Psychotherapy should normally be given around a year to enable lasting change.
