How it works

 

Generally practised on a one-to-one basis, the space I offer is strictly confidential. 

I offer both short-term and open-ended therapy. Unless something legitimate happens I have a 48-hour cancellation policy.

Session lasts for 50 minutes; however, there are cases where hypnosis intervention requires more than an hour.

 

Being hypnotized

 

People often fear that being hypnotized will make them lose control, surrender their will etc. Hypnosis is a 100% consent state and if at any time you feel uncomfortable and want to terminate the session, then you will be perfectly capable of doing so.

 

First contact

 

You can contact me by e-mail or you can also call me on 07856 677 361 so that briefly your reasons for seeking therapy can be discussed and eventually a preliminary session can be arranged.

 

Preliminary session

 

In a initial session, you will have the chance  to discuss your difficulties in more details and I can offer you a general formulation of the problem, explain practical aspects and an outline programme for future sessions. 

The preliminary session is also an opportunity for you to get a sense of me and how I work while I will need to get a sense of whether I feel able to help you. This process may require more sessions.

 

Languages

 

I offer therapy in English and in Italian. I can also communicate in Spanish if preferable.

Fees

 

Fees, including those for the first session, are always agreed after a discussion of your personal circumstances  and the frequency of sessions.

Depending on availability, I offer low-cost therapy for student or for unemployed.

 

 Code of ethics

 

For this space to be safe, productive and rewarding, my commitment includes regular supervision and ongoing personal therapy with a qualified psychoanalyst, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist.

Supervision and personal therapy is combined with reading, self-reflections, consultation with colleagues and learning from others and clients, in order to stimulate awareness, creativity and critical thinking. 

 

I have full professional liability insurance.

 

I abide by the code of ethics of my registering bodies.
