What happens in a therapy session
Psychotherapy has been described as a helpful conversation. It is that—and can be much more. I use a psychodynamic approach informed by Jung and the British school of psychoanalysis. I do not diagnose and I believe that a label is not particularly helpful. In sessions we will look at your dreams and emotions with a mind to establishing a connection between you and the disowned aspects of yourself. The atmosphere is casual and non-judgmental. I believe humour is an important part of therapy.
When you contact me we will arrange for a time when we can sit down and have a discussion about what brings you to therapy. My fees range from $90 to $110 per session and you can pay by cash, cheque or email money transfer.
