Frequently asked Questions
How to make a booking? Just get in touch by email, phone or whatsapp and we can arrange a time to meet.
How long are therapy sessions Online and at the office? Sessions are one hour online and one hour at the office.
Is Online Therapy as effective? In my experience Online Therapy is just as effective as in person.
How does Online therapy work? We simply agree on a time and meet on the agreed platform (usually Skype, Google Meet, Whatsapp video) at that time. Otherwise, the therapy session is exactly the same as a session at the office and lasts one hour.
Is it possible to speak by phone before booking a session? Of Course, this can be a good way to answer any doubts and get a sense of whether we might work together. Just get in touch and we can arrange a time for a phone call.
What is the recommended frequency of psychotherapy? Ideally it is good to do therapy regularly for a period of time - most people do once a week or once every two weeks.
How long does therapy last? This will depend on your objectives and on your concerns. But as a guide most people do between 3-12 months - though some stay longer or take a break and return - and some feel that they benefit from just a few sessions at a moment of crisis.
Do you have to make a commitment to a certain number of sessions? No, it is always your choice but I can hep to guide you if you are uncertain. As noted above I recommend thinking of doing two to four sessions a month for several months, but it is up to the person.
What is my cancellation policy? Cancellations with less than 24hours notice I charge 25€, this enables me to plan my time and control my fixed costs.
How can you pay? Cash, Bank transfer or Bizum from a Spanish Bank account. I ask clients to pay either after each session or at the end of the month.
Do I work with any health insurance providers? Not directly. But, if your health insurance has a reimbursement policy which allows you to choose providers and you have a referral by a psychiatrist to do psychotherapy then you can ask me for monthly bills which you should be able to use to receive reimbursements from your healthcare provider.
Do I offer work experience or internships? I am an individual therapist in private practice, so I do not offer these I'm afraid.
I am happy to answer any more questions by email or phone.
