An online consultation (or session) takes place via an online video call using Skype, Zoom or Whereby. We get in touch with you before the call, confirm that you are alone, and we start the session. You can imagine it as being a calm conversation with a friend where you feel comfortable to share your thoughts without the fear of being judged or misunderstood.

The sessions happen from the comfort of your own home, car or any place it would be convenient for you to have a one-on-one conversation with me – all you need is a device with a camera and a stable internet connection. Online therapy is convenient, especially during a pandemic or situation, where you can or do not want to get out of your home or comfort zone.

Therapy can be short-term or long-term – it’s a process unique to each client. The number of sessions depends on your situation and the complexity of the issues you want to resolve. I recommend having therapy for at least one month – which shall be enough to start engaging and noticing changes in your feelings and perceptions of the issue at hand. While some clients get to the desired state of their emotional well-being relatively fast, others may need ongoing support for a year or longer.

Studies suggest that online treatment is just as effective as a face-to-face alternative. For instance, a meta-analysis (Barak, Hen, Boniel-Nissim & Shapira, 2008) combining results from 92 scientific studies and 9000 clients compared traditional and internet-based therapy and found no difference in effectiveness. A growing body of research provides support for online practices as a legitimate therapeutic activity.

Each session lasts 50 minutes. In case we realize we need some more time, we will sort it out on the spot. Some of my clients ask right-away for a double-session, especially during couple therapy. This can be useful to work through a specific issue.

Generally I suggest having our sessions once a week or bimonthly. Having said this, it solemnly depends on you and what you feel you need.

Normally each of my clients I work with pays for the sum due at the end of each month. If you are in another country, and we agree on online-therapy, we will work through standard bank transfers. Details I discuss with each client individually via phone and email.

Yes! Many of my online clients do not have the context or surrounding to speak freely using a Laptop. Sitting in your car or walking through a quite park is a common thing and should not be discouraged. Most importantly is: You should feel comfortable to speak and don’t feel any pressure by others.

You can cancel the session up to 48 hours in advance by contacting me.

Yes! The first step is always a first short call to discuss your goals and get to know each other. Just fill out the form to the best you can, and I will get in touch with you soon.
