  • What does the session format look like and how long do they last?
    Initial sessions usually last approximately 90 minutes. They generally are conducted as follows; 30 min – Your therapist will conduct an initial intake interview where your presenting issue (s) will be discussed in greater detail. He or she will likely follow-up with related questions specific to your pre-session intake forms. Discussion will also include an orientation to our various therapy interventions as well as answer unanswered questions 40 min – We typically begin with a very simple yet elegantly powerful imagination centered protocol which engages the inner you. It is effectively a therapist narrated metaphorical story that engages your sub-conscious mind in order to reveal areas which may be directly or indirectly contributing to your issue. Clients find this session extremely relaxing, informative and encouraging. 20 min – The last portion of the session is what we call a post session “debrief”. It is at this time where the sub-conscious mind begins bubbling up seemingly unrelated thoughts prompted by previously finished metaphor session. These fleeting and seemingly disconnected thoughts are often very significant to the design of the follow-up session where a more targeted remedial solution will be utilized.
  • How long does it take to get a problem resolved?
    Most single-issue problems can be successfully addressed in two to three sessions.
