FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Integrative psychotherapy and counselling sessions are 60 minutes. Sometimes clients also like to allow some time at either side of the session to clear their mind ahead of the therapy, or reflect on what has been discussed following the session.
At your initial session I will have an intake and consent form for you to fill out so please allow 10-15 min to enable you to do this. In your first session, you will be able to discuss what has brought you to counselling and what you are hoping for from our work together. I will travel with you from the very beginning until you reach your desired results. Unique problems require a unique approach, which is why I use an integrative psychotherapy, counselling and energy medicine approach to the work we will do together.
Sessions are scheduled weekly to begin with or every second week if this is what you prefer. Initially I like to suggest we work together 3 or 4 times to see how we work together and then to reassess working together going forward. It is always difficult to say how many session a client may need as this depends on the complexity of your issues.

I have been working with international clients over the phone for 16 years helping develop their personal path for a more joyful, deeply satisfying life. Working over the phone this way is as effective as working with me in person and I apply the same approach and principles to the work as an in- person session. I not only listen to you with my ears but my entire body is attuned to you psycho-therapeutically and energetically. When working over the phone my integrative approach to psychotherapy, counselling and energy medicine is the same as when I am working in-person at my office and the results are the same. When scheduling appointments for international clients consideration and flexibility is given to allow for any time zone differences.
