What happens in the first session?
In the first session we begin by talking about what you are seeking by coming to the Practice for Life Balance Healing, so that we are clear about what is involved and what targets you want to achieve. By the end of the session, we want to jointly set which methods we will use to support you in achieving your targets. We will use kinesiology to aid us in the selection. We then agree to a framework for methods, time, costs and each of our responsibilities in the process.
Should I prepare myself for the first session?
It is important that you think about what your issue is and what you expect from our cooperative work. What would you hold to be a successful outcome? We will talk about these things in the first session.
How long will it take to resolve my issues?
It is not possible to give a general answer to this question – the time involved is dependent upon the complexity of the topic and your level of commitment to resolving it. We always look, though, for the most efficient methods for treatment. Your motivation and willingness to do your “homework” between our sessions has a large influence on the speed of achieving success.
How many sessions are necessary to resolve my issues?
In the first session we will agree to an estimate of the number of sessions necessary. Our goal is to have as many sessions as necessary and so few as possible. Many topics can be sufficiently resolved in 2 – 3 sessions, others require more. You participate in determining the number of sessions and their frequency.
Does my health insurance cover the costs?
The practice cannot settle its costs via health insurance companies. If your health insurance usually reimburses treatments costs of holistic healing practitioners (Heilpraktikergebuehrenordnung), please clarify with them if treatment under code # 19 “Psychotherapy” will be reimbursed. Otherwise, the costs are to be covered privately.
Do I have to be a Buddhist to use Buddhist psychotherapy techniques?
Absolutely not! The techniques of Buddhist psychotherapy are not religious in nature, but rather are based on the functional mode of human consciousness – how consciousness engages with its objects – a physical object, a thought, or a sensory perception. Buddhist psychotherapy is equally suitable for all people, independent of age, culture or intellectual background.
