The process of psychotherapy

The period and frequency of attending psychotherapy are individual, depending on the client’s situation, needs and the goals of the therapy.

In the interests of the process, it is important that the client informs the psychotherapist about ongoing treatments, as well as cooperation with other specialists (doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health specialists).

Strong feelings can arise during psychotherapy. Be sure to report any deterioration in your condition as soon as possible.

The client has the right to stop the therapy at any time, but it is recommended to come to last session after the decision to stop to close the open ends.

Be informed!
