Initial Session
Generally, the first couple of sessions involve an assessment, which basically is to gather information of your life stage, goals and concerns, so we can begin to form a plan and goals for therapy. The frequency of sessions will also be discussed, and subsequent sessions booked.
In this session we also evaluate whether we are a good fit and the best service to suit your needs.

Your commitment and active involvement play a key role in the journey of mind & heart transformation. .
The process of mind & heart transformation is like a journey, in which the client is the traveler, and the therapist is a guide. As a guide, the therapist is there to provide support and guidance. However, the client is the one travelling in their journey, so the traveler plays an active role in the process
The traveler’s role is to determine how fast we can go and the depth of exploration and final destination.

  • Choose a therapist that you feel comfortable with.
  • Reflect on what you would like to achieve in therapy.
  • Engage actively in the process.
  • Share your thoughts and feelings, as you feel comfortable. If there are issues you find difficult to talk about, that can be done at your own pace.
  • It might be helpful to take notes during sessions and to use them for reflection.
  • Take time to reflect between sessions on the contend and material that has been explored.
  • Journaling could be a very helpful tool during the process of self-discovery.
  • Sessions might involve certain take-away tasks which have been formulated carefully to assist you in the process of mind & heart transformation.
  • Engaging in these tasks is very beneficial to produce positive results. Effort into these practices is highly recommended.
  • Sessions are only 50 minutes once/twice a week. The extent of effort one puts into reflection and practices between sessions greatly supports the journey.
  • Enjoy the journey!
