My ideal client is seeking a legitimate and credentialed professional, and a setting where issues, fears, distress can be discussed openly and in confidence. Once issues are clear, together we will make a plan of action that gets the client's life on track. I am honest and direct and pragmatic.
I like to get a clear understanding of the concerns, look at beliefs and cognitions the client has, see if these beliefs impair quality of life and can be reworked for necessary change. I also provide EMDR treatment for resolution of aftermath of trauma, abuse and for low self-esteem.
My fee is probably higher than most other practitioners on this list. I am one of the local pioneers of private psychology practice in this city. I have a lot of experience. I endeavour to get to the target issues quickly, therefore costs in fact may be lower than for longer term work.
