What is a counselling psychologist?
As a counselling psychologist I help you with your emotional, social, vocational, educational, and health-related concerns. This can help you to improve your well-being, alleviate distress and maladjustment, and resolve crises.
Can I meet you, before committing?
Of course! A healthy counselling relationship is based on a positive personal relationship. This is why I strongly suggest having an initial meeting to ensure the basis for a working relationship.
How often do we meet?
Usually it will be once a week. Sometimes, in very pressing situations, it could be twice weekly. Towards the end of our counselling work we can taper off to biweekly or even monthly meetings.
The number of sessions is highly dependent on the issues you would like to work on. Sometimes just a few meetings can help you to take matters into your own hands. My aim is to make this happen as quickly as possible.
What are your rates?
150.- SFr per 50 minute session. Health insurance does not cover these fees.
What happens if I can’t make it to my appointment?
No problem. If you cancel 24h in advance there will be no charge and we can reschedule. Otherwise – except of course in an emergency situation – I will have to charge the session.
Is “Walk and Talk” for me?
Walk and Talk can be for everybody. You don’t need to be fit but it is a good way to combine exercise with counselling.
Please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to hear from you!
