FAQ

Our work begins with an initial intake meeting that typically lasts 60 minutes. The intake is an opportunity for the two of us to get to understand your goals and obtain a comprehensive sense of current concerns.

At the end of the intake I provide feedback, share my first thoughts, describe how I may be helpful and summarize the next steps of our plan. The intake is also an opportunity for you to get to know my style and approach and answer any additional questions about what it would be like to work with me.

In a nutshell, understanding the relationship dynamics of the client. It is based on the use of a model or a number of models of how we might develop from infancy, through childhood and adolescence into adult life, and what this process imparts to us along the way.

The counsellor or life coach draws upon a single model or a number of models to understand what may particularly need to be adressed in order to assist a client towards the healing of emotional suffering, difficult relationships, or unwanted behaviours.

Psychodynamic interest in personal development focuses on the relatedness to self and others, the formation of character, and the place of emotions in the developping person.

This approach helps the client to own his/her emotions, understand the impact on his/her life and on the relationships formed, paving the way to a well-rounded and happier self.

When you move into an unfamiliar environment, your old habits are uprooted which in turn leads to a very disturbing inadequacy. This may cause psychological uncertainty, really tough to face in an unknown culture where no one seems to respond the same way you usually do. Contact me to settle in nicely or get prepared for another move.
