The number of sessions will depend on your unique circumstances and needs – we often recommend an initial six sessions with a review after that time.
It will also depend on the type of therapy that you choose to try. Some therapy techniques are designed to be short-term and can last as little as six weeks, whereas some therapies tend to be much longer term. Many last for several months or even years, but we will always regularly review progress throughout the counselling sessions.
Once you start having counselling sessions, it is not uncommon for new issues and angles to appear which you were not aware of when you started the sessions, and you may then want to explore these. It is possible to see improvement faster than you expected, though, which is why we review your progress periodically.
