The number of sessions you may need will depend on a number of factors, such as:
- the issues you are experiencing
- how severe and long-standing these issues are
- what you want to get from the process, and
- the pace you are comfortable to work at – it is important to go at a pace that’s right for you.
Individual sessions are scheduled weekly and are for 60 minutes.
Most people find it helpful to book a regular appointment (i.e. so you would attend on the same time and day every week), that way your appointment slot is guaranteed.
I appreciate that sometimes people need more flexibility to book appointments at different times from week to week as their family or work commitments may vary. I will be as flexible as I can, however the degree of flexibility will depend on what’s available in my diary at any given time so please ask about this when we speak if it is something you are likely to need to do.
Either approach works, so long as you are committed to attending regularly – the important thing is to find a way that suits you and enables you to attend counselling on a regular weekly basis.
