Psychological counselling & Psychologist services
The questions that may arise
If you don’t have the means to pay for the service yourself, reach out to me. I deeply believe that psychological help should be accessible to all people in need of it and we can figure out the solution together.
You can pay with cash on the spot, transfer money or receive a bill. When paying the bill or transferring money, timely payment guarantees the session.
Life is full of twists and turns. When necessary, please cancel the session by 14:00 the working day prior to our meeting. After that, the late cancellation or no-show fee are equal to the session’s price and are to be paid in entirety. When registering for a session you agree to these terms.
We will meet at Vaksali 17a-202. The most convenient way to get here is to enter through the door which has the cafe sign above it. From there come to the second floor and room 202 awaits.
Information shared during counselling is confidential and regulated by law. According to the law, there are 2-3 exceptions, depending on the situation, and they are for the protection of the person themself and others. Exceptions are as follows:
- If you are a danger to yourself or others. In such a case, I assess the risk level and am obliged to inform someone about it if necessary. At this point, it is also important to distinguish whether they are thoughts or plans. In the case of thoughts, it is not defined as a threat, but in the case of a plan, it is.
- Felony of the first degree. A crime of the first degree harms the life and health of the Estonian population, the exercise of Estonian state power and defence capability or the environment. Psychologists are obliged to inform relevant persons about them.
- Relating to a child. I am obliged to share everything related to the child with the parent, but at the first meeting we set the boundaries here and agree on whether and how much it is necessary.
Everything else we say stays between us and no one else hears it.
You can do this if you want to. At the first meeting, I generally ask the person about the goal of our work (what they want to achieve) and what their expectations are of me. If you know why you set an appointment and what your goal is with the work, you have already done everything necessary.
During our first meeting, we get to know each other. The most important thing during this session is that you feel comfortable. Since everything starts with cooperation and mutual compatibility, I recommend thinking “is this the psychologist for me?”. If the answer is yes and it seems that we are compatible, I will introduce myself to you a little, find out about you as a person and the reason for you setting the appointment. The substantive work begins in the following meetings, so the purpose of the first meeting is to see if we are compatible.
