Psychoanalysis is the theoretical and methodological basis of my work, which also takes into account the state-of-the-art research. Theoretical concepts and empirical observations reflect the ongoing progress in psychoanalytic research.
When you get into contact with me, we will arrange for an initial exploratory consultation to find out whether psychoanalysis could be helpful to you.
Once you have made up your mind, we will agree on frequency and fee for the therapeutic sessions.
Conflicts for couples evolve when the emotional connection got lost. Reestablishing emotional connection is the effort and aim of Attachmentfocussed and Emotionfocussed Couples Therapy. My therapeutic approach refers to theory and concepts of Attachment Theory, experts in the field like Susan Johnson, Leslie Greenberg and John Gottman.
A double session is recommended. The fee per double session (90 Minuten) is EUR 280,-.
One session (45 minutes) per week is the minimum frequency of sessions to ensure an effective therapeutic process. Depending on the intensity of symptoms, it might be useful to increase the frequency of sessions.
How long will it take to make progress?
The number of sessions you need to make progress varies. Some clients decide to take a break (with the option of resuming sessions after a few months); other clients attend regular sessions for several years before deciding to end treatment.
During the termination phase of the therapeutic process further insights into emotional conflicts, relational experiences and attachment patterns are gained.
The fee per session: from EUR 130,-.
The Austrian compulsory health insurance plan reimburses between EUR 28,– and EUR 50,– per session – based on a diagnosis listed in the Diagnostic Manual (ICD-10).
Employment-based international health insurance plans usually refund a large percentage of the fee.
Supervision and Coaching
My work as a supervisor and coach is also guided by the psychoanalytic approach. Self-awareness, self-reflection and self-observation play an important role in developing professional skills. Psychoanalytic interventions support processes of self reflection and raise awareness of the conditions to which professional activities are subject (organization, colleagues).
Once stress-related issues have been identified and disturbing emotional patterns in work contexts have been recognized, the feelings of effectiveness and pro-activeness can be restored.
It depends on the individual needs of the client.
The fee for one session of individual supervision (45 minutes) in my practice is between EUR 140,- . The fee for one session of group supervision depends on the issue as well as the size and format of the group.
Supervision (or Coaching) sessions are held with individual clients as well as with groups. They will be of variable duration e.g. one hour (per week), half a day (per month) or even several consecutive days (in case of intensive supervisory intervention).
Initial exploratory consultation
The initial exploratory consultation usually takes 50 minutes. Sometimes it may be extended (by another 50 minutes) if necessary.
The fee for one 50-minute session is EUR 120,00.
