Clients work one-on-one with a therapist in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment to explore their feelings, thoughts and behaviours and present-day difficulties. Services available in Russian and English, in person and online. There is good evidence that online therapies can be as helpful as face-to-face therapies.
During the first few sessions, I am going to conduct a psychological assessment by asking questions about your life, present and past experience, some formal information about whom you live with, your relationship, work, leisure, what brings you in therapy, and what changes you expect to make from it. After the assessment phase, we can both to decide if continuing to work together feels like a good idea and make a treatment plan.
Please, read Informed consent before coming for the first appointment, a printed copy will be provided.
