We give therapy sessions in English – individual and couple therapy. Giving couple sessions, we mostly work together. That has many advantages. As a man and woman, we have different qualities that we can add to the therapeutic work, and together we can be more aware of what is happening in the process. As clients, you have two different people to relate to, both to experience support or to be challenged where necessary. Each session is 90 minutes and costs NOK 2 200 with both of us. One therapist NOK 1 400.
