"It's not too difficult to get the skeletons out of the closet with people, but to get the gold out is a different matter. That is therapy. Psychology is the Art of finding the gold of the spirit."
- Robert Johnson

Psychotherapy and How It Works

How therapy works

Generally, meetings are held once a week at a regular time for a 50-minute session. The regularity of sessions helps to increase familiarity and trust, which in turn facilitates the work, producing long-lasting results. An overall focus is set for the work and there is a regular check-in to assess progress.

The therapy session

During each session, the client directs the focal point of the meeting and the therapist supports in listening, making connections and assisting the client to identify and articulate patterns of thinking and behavior that may no longer be productive or life-giving. This process of identifying, emotionally experiencing and articulating a painful pattern or experience leads to release and relief and it makes room for new and healthy patterns to naturally emerge.

Length of work

Sometimes the work is in-depth and long term. At other times the focus may be on a discrete issue or problem and may take only a few sessions. The client and therapist determine this together.

Goal of therapy

The goal of therapy is to create an environment where the client achieves more fulfillment and ease and is able to bring this way of being into everyday life.
