APPROACH AND OBJECTIVE
We understand mental disorders and disease symptoms to be indicators for previously overlooked aspects of one’s life: an unacknowledged desire, a pain pushed aside, a dilemma. In short, they point to something important, which has not yet found its proper place in an individual’s inner life.
Attentive perception and precise, empathetic identification help discover new possibilities and paths through familiar ways.
It is about bringing the different sides of one’s self into contact with each other and balancing them, allowing for a life that is more passionate, more responsible, and more free.
- The initial consultation consists of a double session that lasts 90 minutes. It is subject to a charge and is non-binding.
- In case of continued interest, one or two additional sessions are dedicated to formulating the therapy approach and objectives more precisely.
- Therapy sessions take place at a frequency that is as consistent as possible, initially every one or two weeks. Regular assessment sessions will also be scheduled.
- Normally, both patient and therapist will notice that therapy is approaching its end. The initial goal setting and frequent assessment sessions support progress observation. Sometimes, an initial number of sessions can also be agreed upon.
- Patients can terminate the therapy at any time. In such cases, it is advisable for the patient to discuss, in a closing session, his or her reasons with the therapist, which could include uncertainty, injury or criticism. This is intended to conclude the therapy definitively, and not for the patient to be persuaded to continue; the aim consists of fully understanding and clarifying the therapist/patient relationship.
- Therapists are obligated to welcome feedback openly and, as it is in their own professional interest, to take it seriously. Therapists will look for an alternative and suitable path for their patients. This can also mean that they may suggest a different, and possibly better suited, professional.
