Frequently Asked Questions

What is the therapy like?

You and I together determine the therapy objectives. You determine the number of sessions and how often you would like to consult depending on your needs. We then regularly follow-up on progress towards your therapy objectives. At the end of each session, you evaluate the quality of our therapeutic relationship to optimize its effectiveness.

How long will the therapy continue?

The answer to this question depends on a number of factors: your needs, the complexity of your problems, your personal resources, and the quality of our therapeutic relationship. Some of my clients decided that they had achieved their objectives in only two, three or four sessions . Others have opted to have a larger number of sessions to achieve their goals (i.e. ten or more sessions). I evaluate on a regular basis the client’s well-being and the quality of our therapeutic relationship. This practice, according to the literature, can significantly improve the therapeutic outcomes.

How do you deal with confidentiality issues?

I am obligated to keep the therapy confidential. I cannot release any information to a third party without written authorisation from the client, or verbal authorization, in cases of emergency. The only exception to this level of confidentiality is determined by Article 18 of the Code of Ethics: “Psychologists may communicate information protected by professional secrecy to prevent an act of violence, including a suicide, where they have reasonable cause to believe that there is an imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury to a person or an identifiable group of persons.”

Insurance companies

You must verify with your health insurance company if they require a medical referral before the initiation of therapy. If so, you must obtain a medical referral before our first session. If the medical referral is not required, you can proceed directly with the first session. The reimbursement of therapy expenses is based on the procedures established by your insurance company.

Tax deductions

Psychotherapy expenses are part of the medical expenses you can deduct on your income taxes. You can deduct the portion that is not covered by your insurance (typically 10 or 20 %), or the entire amount if you do not have an insurance coverage.
