Quite often when we are stuck with a problem in our lives, we turn to our friends and close ones for counsel. But sometimes, we feel so isolated and cornered with our concern that asking for help becomes almost impossible. We might find ourselves in an uncomfortable spot of having to deal with it all by ourselves.
If you can resonate with this, then counselling is the right option for you. And if you have never had counselling before, it is natural to have a number of very basic, but very relevant questions regarding counselling. That is why I thought it might be useful to answer some key questions that I get asked frequently:
How long does a session last?
A regular session lasts 60 minutes. My first session is free and lasts 20 minutes.
How much will this therapy cost?
Presently, I charge a fee of 35€ for a 60 minute counselling session.
How often should I have my appointments?
Ideally, once a week.
What type of problems can you help with?
I offer individual counselling for adults struggling with anxiety, stress, isolation, depression, grief, relationship issues, life changes & adjustment.
How long can counselling go on for?
Counselling is very subjective and can continue for anywhere between a few sessions to a year. It depends on the problem presented, the therapy model and your availability.
Can i use my private insurance?
I accept only private paying clients. My fees are not covered by the german insurance companies.
Will therapy help me?
People often come to therapy with the hope that their therapist will solve all their problems. On the contrary, going to therapy will make you realize that it is only you who has the power to make changes in your life. I, as your counsellor can only facilitate your process of self-discovery and walk alongside you as you move forward towards achieving your personal goals.

My problem is very personal, can I trust you?
I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and a compassionate environment where we can explore your issues together. Your problems are always treated with utmost confidentiality, unless you are a threat to yourself or those around you. Only under such extreme circumstances, the confidentiality will be broken and you will be kept in the loop.
