Our clients often ask – how long will it take? They wonder, how many sessions will I need to achieve my therapy goals? How often do we have to meet to achieve my goals?
The majority of our clients report observable, positive change after 1-3 sessions. A few of our clients are satisfied at this point, but most of our clients choose to continue until they have achieved and sustained the change they desire. Often, our clients achieve their goals within 10 – 20 sessions, depending on the complexity of their situation and the goals they are trying to achieve. As our service does not have a session limit, many of our client’s choose to continue working with us on a “check in basis”.
At the beginning of therapy, we generally plan to meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis and then increase the time between sessions when you begin to realize the gains of your investment in therapy.
If you choose to have more than one therapy session with us, you will be invited to present items to discuss, review work completed outside of session, and continue to address and refine your counselling goals, leading to the development of your treatment plan.
Together, you and your psychologist will determine the duration of therapy.
Have we worked together before? If so, please get in touch, we welcome returning clients as well as new clients.
