Costs of the Initial Consultation

According to psychotherapy and coaching research the initial consultation is one of if not the most important session and has a considerable influence on the success of the further process. In the initial consultation we will discuss the topics and challenges which you are facing, the terms and conditions of our cooperation, your expectations of me and how I think I can help you. Most importantly it should also be used to evaluate the fit between us on an interpersonal level. We need to gel for our work together to be effective. Should that not be the case I will suggest alternate ways for you to proceed. The initial consultation has in any event an intrinsic value and is therefore chargeable at the standard rate.

Accepted Forms of Payment

Payment for private sessions must be made in cash at the end of the session. Payment for services for companies and institutions may be paid for by bank transfer. In the case of the latter payments should arrive on my account within 30 days.

Appointment Cancellation Conditions

Agreed appointments must be cancelled a minimum of 48 hours in advance in order to avoid costs being invoiced. Sessions not cancelled punctually will be billed at the full rate for the agreed booked duration.

I also commit to my clients to maintain a 48 hour cancellation period for arranged appointments. Should I not be able to fulfil my side of the agreement then I will offer a session for the agreed duration without cost.

Once within a calendar year we both have the right to breach this agreement once and to cancel an arranged session without stating a reason and without maintaining the 48 hour notice period.

Reimbursement of Costs from the Austrian Health System (Krankenkasse)

A partial reimbursement of the costs for individual psychotherapy (€21.80 per session in general, €40 from the BVA) from the Austrian health system (Krankenkasse) is possible. Refunding is provided on the premise that an individual has mental health issues and that psychotherapy is indicated for treating related symptoms. Unfortunately I am currently unable to offer any treatment for which a full refund is available. Coaching, couples and family therapy are also not recognised by the Austrian state as being a part of the national health system and it is therefore not possible to obtain any refunding from the state for these services.

Duration of Counselling, Psychotherapy and Coaching

The question of how long counselling, psychotherapy or coaching processes take is difficult to answer as there is no standard solution. Duration is dependent on a number of factors including the nature of a problem and its urgency, personal goals, the personalities involved etc. I work with methods which place great value on efficiency and as such aim to enable solution-building within as short a time frame as possible. Coaching and counselling processes can mostly be wrapped up within 5 to 10 sessions. For a course of treatment with psychotherapy you should generally be prepared for a longer time-frame. Changing the habits of a lifetime takes time and practice!
