Eli Pines MBACP
Hi and welcome to my profile.
You are likely to be looking for help for something in life which is bothering you and that is why you have reached my profile. If that is the case, Well done!!!
It is often hard for a lot of us to be motivated enough to reach out for help, but it is a important and vital part of getting helped.
So you have taken the first step in the right direction! I would be glad to hear from you to see if I can help you.
"What to expect in your first session"
I have a flexible approach to our sessions, I offer brief intervention work for short term problems which may be a reaction to a life event. Longer term therapy for difficulties you may have been experiencing over a long period of time. Our sessions will last for 50 minutes.
"How my approach can help you"
I am not stuck down to a specific method of therapy, rather I make use of a potpourri of skills and training which I have studied and trained in over the years, and base my choice of methods used in each case upon my experience and the particular case at hand. You are unique and so deserve a unique approach too. I enjoy being creative at my work. At the same time I believe the relationship you will build with me is at least as important as the theory that underlies the work.
I offer therapy through Skype. Attending therapy online can offer a lot of benefits. Some clients are shy to go to the office of the therapist and are more comfortable online without being physically present at the therapist's office. You may also have time constraints or geographical limits (kids at home or work hours) and so online therapy can enable you to still receive the help you want so much. You can also choose the location where you want to be for the session, enabling you to stay at home or free to choose a convenient secure place I try to be as flexible as possible with suiting my times to my clients. That is possible due to the sessions taking place online and not in my office. The prices for therapy over Skype are also usually cheaper due to lower costs for the therapist. I realise that some people might still be wary of therapy over skype and therefore I offer FIRST SESSION FOR FREE WITH NO OBLIGATION TO CONTINUE
Looking forward to hearing from you and feel free to send me a message with anything you would like to discuss. I am happy to offer a free initial session for you to get a feel and for us to discuss treatment plan.
