Psychotherapy and Supervision
ENGLISH - FRANÇAIS - NEDERLANDS
What is psychotherapy and counselling?
Most people find that being taken seriously, heard and acknowledged by another human being is very powerful. Psychotherapy offers you a safe and confidential space to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing or uncomfortable with someone with no preconceptions of who you are, and with the added bonus of having skills and training behind them to guide you through your concerns.
Does it work for couples?
When we have been in a relationship or marriage for a long time it can be easy to fall into a trap of not listening to the other person or not communicating our needs clearly. Sometimes talking to someone with no connection to yourself or your partner is all it takes for you to gain perspective.
How will psychotherapy make me feel?
Psychotherapy is a very personal process. Sometimes it is necessary to talk about painful feelings or difficult decisions, so you may go through a period of feeling worse than when you started. Usually it will take a number of sessions before therapy starts to make a difference. On rare occasions, a single session may be enough.
How much will it cost?
Sessions last 50 minutes and cost € 80. Couples sessions can last up to 75 minutes to allow both partners sufficient time to express themselves. The fee for a couples session is € 120. Cancellation up to 48h in advance is free of charge. Later the full fee is due, except in cases of sudden illness.
Who needs to know?
Confidentiality is a principle of ethical practice. It means that the therapist will not disclose anything about you or what you have shared. This may not be upheld only in instances of danger of harm to self or others, which legally bind the therapist to break confidentiality. In order to help you better, the therapist may talk about your work together - without disclosing personally identifiable details - with her supervisor.
Does it work for everybody?
Psychotherapy is not a universal cure-all. Because you may be talking about very personal and often painful things, it can sometimes be difficult to keep going. If you feel you are not making any progress, talk to your therapist about your difficulty. It may be a difficult period you can work through together or you may want to explore whether working with another therapist or a different approach might be more suitable for you.
Is all psychotherapy the same?
There are different methods and approaches to therapy, However, research shows that the relationship with your therapist or counsellor is often more important than the method they use.
