The first orientation session takes normally around 30-45 minutes and is free. We shall use this session to get to know each other and to identify areas of your life you wish to receive support with in the future sessions. In this first session we shall establish an initial 'click' between us, which is normally an essential element for building of a trust bond necessary for the future work together.
Confidentiality is another important component of the counselling and/or coaching relationship. Everything that we discuss in the sessions is kept in the strictest conficence between client and myself, the coach.
The 'real' work begins in the sessions following the orientation sessions. That is when we start addressing every issue in depth. These sessions last 90 minutes.
A number of sessions varies from client to client. Some clients will need only a few sessions, while others might choose to go through a much deeper process of self-discovery and inner transformation and therefore a longer term counselling process will be more suitable for them. In every individual case the number of sessions is agreed between client and myself and is regularly assessed and adjusted in line with the process, the development and the client's needs and wish to continue.
Normally the sessions take place once a week usually at the same time and day of the week.
At the moment I offer only online sessions either via Zoom or Skype.
The online sessions are not only convenient way of being counselled, but in the time of Corona virus they have become a necessity. While sitting in the comfort and safety of your own home, without additional time or money being spent on going to and from sessions you can attenda an online session using ZOOM, Skype or even WhatsApp and Messanger. In addition to convenience, some people prefered online sessions because it gives them an additional level of safety and orivacy to be coached while they are in their own home environment.

I truly hope that you would see counselling as something that will benefit your life, in both short a long term, and therefore, an investment worth making rather than yet another cost to be incurred.
Your investment will be in form of money, time and commitment to your own development and inner growth.
Financially, the rate is €75 per session (90 minutes). The first orientation session is free.
In situations when you are unable to afford the suggested amounts (due to for example low wage or unemployment ) yet you are committed to making changes in your life and believe that you would benefit greatly from sessions with me, I am open to discussing your situation and am willing to consider your suggestion of contributions, which you would be able to afford comfortably, and which would, at the same time, meet my needs for financial security, as well as development and growth.
Time-wise you will be committing yourself to a weekly one hour session plus the time in between the sessions when you will start more consciously paying attention to th process and changes happening inside of you. Time between the sessions is where you trully starting to integrate what you are discovering and learning during the sessions. The time between sessions is when the true growth really occures.
Apart from money and time your investment will also be reflected in the commitment you make to your inner growth and responsibility you take for your inner processes and consequently your interactions and relationships with others.
The real changes with counselling and coaching happen in your day to day life when you apply the tools you have acquired in the sessions and start replacing your old behaviours and strategies with the more life serving ones which better meet your needs and the needs of the others you are in any kind of relationship with.
“Angry humans are frightened.
And instead of compassion,
we offer anger back.”

you have no time to love them.''

lacks time to mend.''

''In all situations,
it is my response that decides
whether the crisis will be
escalated or de-escalated,
and a person
humanised or de-humanised.''
Johan Wolfgang von Goethe
''There is nothing good or bad,
but thinking makes it so.''
''Prejudice of any kind implies
that you are identified with
the thinking mind.
It means that you don't see
another human being any more,
but only your own concept
of that human being.
To reduce a human being to a concept
is already a form of violence.''
