Therapeutic Contract

I would first like to say that I use the word « client » and not « patient » as I do not see a person as having to be passively « fixed » but as someone who has the power and innate resources to be resilient and participate in their own healing process.

As well as creating a safe and clear container for the therapeutical work, a therapeutic contract helps the client recognize the commitment made by the therapist. The flowing agreements must be approved by the client before starting the therapy.  

  • The nature of the therapy :

    • The therapist practices Integrative therapy, and will use different therapeutical tools for the different needs of the client. The therapist is competent for treating complex trauma and early attachment disorders. See all trainings here.
    • Some sessions might include exercices to practice at home. All exercices will be explained in session. Practicing is mandatory but recommended.
    • The goal of the therapy is to heal wounds, integrate all parts of self, understand yourself and your behaviors. Restore inner consciousness

    The practical aspects :

    • Sessions can take place in person (face to face) or by video-consultation (Zoom, Skype or other means) 
    • Individual sessions and couple sessions are 60 minutes long. Clients may ask for 90 minutes if needed. 
    • The frequency of appointments are once a week, exceptionally twice a week if requested by the Client and if the therapist is available. 
    • Once the time slot agreed by both it will remain the same and made unavailable to futur clients.
    • The postponement of a session or the decision to change the time slot of the appointment must be discussed during the session.
    • The Client can contact the therapist in the event of an emergency. This type of call is not charged but it cannot exceed a few minutes or replace a therapy session. If the life of the client is in danger, the therapist is required by law to call the appropriate authorities and breach confidentiality.
    • The Client may feel free to contact the therapist outside of sessions if needed. Client might not have immediate responses, the therapist cannot be 24/7 available, but promesses to read everything sent. 
    • Clients with borderline personality disorder must restrain themselves to threaten the therapist with suicide and agrees not to take their own life while in therapy.
    • New mothers can have their baby with them during the session if they can’t do differently.
    • It is forbidden to eat during sessions, client can bring water or non alcoholic beverages except soda.
