In psychotherapy and coaching exists an agreement or contract.
A contract formulates the expectations of the therapist/coach and client. Usually, before work begins we agree on a contract (often verbally, but better when these expectations are written out)
3 parts of the contract to start online psychotherapy:
In this part, we define the location, date, time, and format of payment. The place is some online program, the date and time we define during the preliminary conversation (15 min) online. Then agree on the form of payment. I'm working on a prepaid basis.
Includes answers to the following questions: 1) what do I as a customer want from a therapist/coach? 2) What professional help do I want? What do I need? 3) How do I know what I'm doing/did what I want / like?
It is an obligation to comply with personal equality in the work of the position I’m-okay - You're okay. I’m not a guru, doctor, or teacher. We are two equal right partners working together to help you reach your goals.
I hope this will help you to create a good contract with your therapist or coach.
