Why do people seek therapy for their relationship?
In a few words, for clear definition of what is current and what is possible for the relationship structure and dynamics.
Therapy for your relationship will clarify and strengthen each partner's self-understanding of the way one's wishes, emotions, and self-expression are actually affecting the other person.
Sometimes people hesitate to start couples therapy because they wonder if it will end their relationship.
In fact, the opposite is true. Most relationships thrive from learning more deeply about each other's uniqueness and best ways to partner.
Why go to Relationship Counseling if I want and don't have a relationship?
The first step to attracting a suitable partner to you, is to recognize who you are!
All of us have some amount of growing up years' emotional hurt and scars. The interaction patterns we develop as protection from emotional damage as children, we continue as adults until we realize the limitations of these familiar ways.
Have you ever noticed that despite feeling unsatisfied by it, you attract a certain type of relationship pattern?
Relationship Counseling for Individuals encourages you to hear and follow your intuitive sense of right feeling when relating to others.
When will I see results of relationship therapy?
Very often after the first session you will feel better!
During our first session we set an agenda for the matter which the couple, individual, or family would like to improve.
This includes each partner's expectations, hesitancies in expression, and felt level of fairness, emotional safety and respect between them.
How long is each Session? How often do we meet?
Each session is an hour and 15 minutes (75 minutes). My generous time allotment allows deep and precise examination of the aspects and dynamics of your circumstance.
You'll leave our session with beneficial insights and new self-knowledge to apply and integrate into your reality.
Usually we meet every 2-3 weeks because our therapy work is detailed and in-depth. Our session interval gives you time to reflect, live your new discoveries and discuss these during our next session!
After each session we mutually decide the optimal time interval which best fits these criteria.
Is therapy confidential?
In general, the law and professional ethics protect the confidentiality of all communications between a client and a psychotherapist. Information is not disclosed without written permission.
The exceptions to this principle are as follows:
- Suspected child abuse or dependant adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s. The therapist must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself. The therapist will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, further measures may be taken without their permission in order to ensure their safety.
