Therapy duration depends on individual requirements, and could vary person to person. Therapy is more about what you are struggling with, and where you want to get to. Some people can get back on track with a couple of sessions, whereas others may need longer term treatment. In the initial assessment I can give you a clearer sense of how long we will work collaboratively toward your goals. This will be depend on our regular review and your progress. My aim is to empower you with the understanding and tools to become your own therapist and be able to manage your setbacks.
