“We are not what happened to us, we are what we wish to become”. Carl Jung
ARE THE SESSIONS CONFIDENTIAL?
Yes, I am professionally and ethically compelled to maintain complete confidentiality. No information about you will be shared with anyone without your consent.
HOW LONG WILL I HAVE TO STAY IN THERAPY?
This depends largely from the nature of the issues that need to be dealt with, from the level of openness/resistance to therapy and from circumstances that may be beyond your and my control. At times just a few sessions may make a huge difference, other times therapy needs to continue for extensive periods of time. It also depends on the desired outcome. You will probably have a better indication after the first session. You are entitled to terminate the therapeutic relationship any time you desire.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE FIRST SESSION?
Firstly you will have the opportunity to explain the reasons for consultation and what your desired outcome is. We will cover some basic background topics and some of your history. The efficacy of psychotherapy depends in large measure from the correct fit between client and therapist and their ability to work well together, so you will have the opportunity to ascertain if you feel comfortable with me or not. If you don’t, I will refer you to an appropriate colleague. If you intend to continue with me, we will make together a basic treatment plan.
