Next steps and Fees
Prior to beginning of therapy together, we will arrange a non-binding first session (50 min.), in which you can take the time to tell me your concerns. In this session we will clarify whether psychotherapeutic treatment is indicated and if so, which kind of therapy would be suitable in your individual case.
If we deicde that you will come to do a course of therapy with me, together we will find a weekly appointment (or several in the case of psychoanalysis) that will be reserved for you for the duration of therapy. All sessions last 50 minutes (individual therapy) or 100 minutes (group therapy). Please come punctually at the exact arranged time, as it is not possible to extend the session beyond the allocated time.
It is possible, in addition to psychotherapy, to be in psychiatric treatment and take prescribed medication, such as antidepressants. However, it is not possible to be simultaneously in outpatient psychotherapy and in inpatient psychotherapeutic or psychiatric treatment.
