A single consultation
When you experience physical pain you can contact a family doctor for advice and for a referral to a specialist. You can also read one of the health guides at the library or find the appropriate information on the Internet.
Surprisingly, when you distress is emotional, you will find it difficult to find appropriate advice. There are no practical encyclopedias of mental health or even simple manuals. For that reason I wrote the book Psychotherapy: A consumer's guide (in Hebrew), which will hopefully be translated into English in the near future.
But sometimes a book is not enough to help you find the right therapist. Each of us goes through many crises in life (due to trauma resulting from accident or illness, a change of residence, death of a loved one, etc.) and faces emotional difficulties (in relationships, at work and at a specific age). However, we refrain from coping with emotional difficulties as we would with medical problems and we seek emotional support only in times of severe emotional crises. Emotional consultation in times of crises or difficulty can save us much suffering, while improving our quality of life and our ability to function and maintain relationships with others.
Despite the need for a single emotional consultation, no such service exists in national health services and professional therapists do not offer such services. psychom will allow you to consult with me regarding all kinds of emotional issues that are bothering you. It is a new field of psychotherapy; as it develops in the future, I will invite prominent therapists to join me on this site.
A single consultation can be suitable for those who are not sure if they really need psychotherapy or those who are having difficulty finding the right therapist and the appropriate therapeutic approach that could help them.
A single consultation is also helpful for those who are not satisfied with their current therapist, and need a second opinion. Most therapist refuse to offer this service, due to a mystical sense of loyalty among professionals.
psychom offers you the opportunity to meet me for a single consultation before you decide to start online therapy and before you choose a therapist, but also when you are confused about whether to continue or discontinue therapy. Even after completing a therapeutic process, it would be possible to arrange a meeting with me in order to better understand the whole process.
If you need more information about online counseling, you are welcome to contact me. I'll try to help you as much as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org.
