STAGES OF THE THERAPEUTIC PROCESS
FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION
Client-therapist relationship is a constant communication process between two equal parties united in an effective team-working toward one higher goal - client’s wellbeing. Exactly for this reason, the introductory conversation is very important. It's a helpful tool for building a rapport on a solid foundation: mutual trust, clarity around the therapy plan and setting realistic expectations. This conversation may happen over the phone, in person or online (via Zoom, Skype or another platform for online meetings).
The client is leaning toward the change, can acknowledge their problem and express a desire to start changing within the next three or six weeks. Client takes significant steps towards change and actively working on their steady improvement. The focus is achieving stability in maintaining minimising or abstinence from self-destructive patterns and behaviours. The client learns how to identify, monitor and manage the triggers on their own, to link behaviour and consequences and to make better choices.
The client might explore the depth of their emotions, talk openly without judgement, gain clarity, discern wisdom, and confidently follow their inner truth. Client understands the hidden mechanisms affecting human brain and behaviour and increases their confidence to release the burden of stressful situations, under-achievements, physical and emotional pain, traumatic events, harmful substances, destructive behavioural patterns, and toxic relationships and to sustain meaningful life full of happiness and wellbeing.
Our session protocols are especially designed to identify, treat, and resolve the true cause of a person’s challenges, rather than simply addressing the symptoms resulting from the cause.
There may be prolonged periods of client's treatment stage and self-actualisation stage and movement depends entirely from client's progress through the therapy process.
