fees & more info

What to expect:

 

At first, there will be an initial meeting to find out if counselling is the right choice for you. It lasts an hour and gives us a first impression whether we feel we can work well together. Of course you can also ask any questions you may have.

 

If you decide to continue, the counselling will begin in the next session (also one hour per session).

 

At our first meeting we will also talk about the number of sessions that might serve you best. A weekly meeting is often good to begin with - the number of weeks depends on your individual situation and wishes. I offer both short- and long-term counselling. If during the counselling process you feel you need more or less time, we'll decide together if we adapt the number of sessions.

 

Fees:

 

Initial meeting (60 min):    35 euro

Counselling      (60 min):    50 euro

 

Some concessions available - please don't hesitate to ask.

 

In Germany, counselling is not equivalent to psychotherapy and not intended to cure any kind of mental illness. Therefore, German health insurances won't reimburse the fees.

 

I will treat our sessions as strictly confidential. This means I won't pass on any personal information to others without your permission. The only exception: If I feel there is a serious risk of harm to yourself or others. In any case I would try to discuss my concerns with you first before I would contact another professional.

 

Supervision:

Like all professional counsellors, I regularly review my work with a supervisor (a senior colleague) in a way that protects your identity. Supervision supports me in my further professional development and ensures I work with you in the best possible way.

 

Missed sessions and cancellations:

If you give me a minimum of 24 hours advanced notice that you are unable to come to a session I might be able to reschedule the session. If you inform me later or miss the appointment you will need to pay for the session.

 

Free spaces:

At the moment I have spaces available and therefore you should be able to arrange an appointment with very little wait.
