The number of sessions required depends on the kind of issue you’re struggling with and how you’re experiencing progress in counselling. Because this is highly individual, we do not set predetermined limits or expectations on the number of sessions you receive. Research shows that on average,
- People experience rapid decreases in emotional distress within 3-4 sessions.
- Significant and lasting improvement is more likely to occur after 8 or more sessions.
- People can continue to see benefits in longer term counselling particularly for severe anxiety, depression, addictions, trauma, and personality issues.
