My session fee is $ 100.00
I strive to make counselling and psychotherapy services available to the most. You can choose between Individual and Group Therapy, depending on your needs. I offer discounted fees for students, pensioners and individuals with low income.
The individual therapy is a collaborative process between therapist and client that aims to facilitate change and improve the quality of life. Individual Therapy can help you:
- Find out new perspectives and strategies that will help you free yourself from habitual patterns of stress, anxiety, depression, and self-criticism.
- Reclaim your personal power by learning how to take responsibility and move forward in life, rather than feeling stuck, helpless and hopeless.
- Handle with major life challenges or childhood trauma
- Improve the quality of your relationships
- Defeat depression, anxiety, stress
- Resolve career disagreements
Therapeutic counselling and psychotherapy sessions (60 minutes): $100
Group therapy is a type of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists (group facilitators) working with several participants (usually 6 to 8 people) with related issues.
Recent research has shown that group therapy is a highly effective form of psychotherapy that provides at least equal benefits as individual psychotherapy (Yalom, 2005). Most people who try group therapy for the first time become comfortable with the process within a short period. This comfort and familiarity help to develop safety, support and cohesiveness in the group where then difficult issues can be discussed and interpersonal learning can occur. Group therapy provides a safe platform where participants realise that they are not the only ones who are experiencing similar problems. Although you are encouraged to express your honest feelings and thoughts, you are the one who determines how much you disclose in the group.
Advantages of Group Therapy
1. Increased Feedback
It enables insightful feedback not only from the group facilitator but also from other the participants in the group. These different perspectives and honest feedback are very helpful and effective in promoting personal growth and change.
Seeing other people handling similar issues can help participants to discover new approaches to their problems.
3. Improve Social Skills
Meaningful interactions with other group members lead new social skills and effective communication, which can be transferred all other relationships.
4. Cost Effective
Due to its format, group therapy is less expensive than individual therapy.
Weekly group therapy sessions are $50 (120 minutes).
Rescheduling and cancellations within 24 hours of your session time incur the full fee. This policy is representative of the industry standard within the counselling, and psychotherapy professions. You will find that therapy works best and produces long-lasting change when appointments are regular and consistent.
