[ detail ]

First meeting

Psychotherapy with Jan Benda!

Before we start psychotherapy itself or any other cooperation, we have to clear up what your expectation is and whether I am able to offer you what you expect. At the first meeting, I will certainly ask you not only why you came to me, but also what you want to achieve by our potential cooperation and what our common goal should be.

As soon as it is clear what you want or need and that I am able to help you in achieving this goal, we can roughly agree on how much time you want to devote to work on the theme and how often consultations should be held.

2 – 3 meetings are usually enough for an acute crisis intervention. In case of psychotherapy I usually agree with clients on 5, but not more than 10 meetings (can be changed at any time) in the beginning, then we evaluate together whether the consultations are beneficial, whether we have achieved the agreed goal, whether we decide to terminate the therapy or to continue in e.g. another 10 meetings.

A usual frequency of meetings is 3 times a month, but we can agree completely individually.
