This is a difficult question to answer. It depends on the issues you are bringing to counselling, and what benefit you feel you are gaining from the sessions. . Individuals should expect to attend for a minimum of 5-8 sessions, as it is difficult to achieve results in less time. Sometimes clients find that they get ongoing benefits from the sessions, and they might attend for a longer period.
The length of treatment depends on a number of variables. These variables include: the severity of the problem, the motivation of the client, the type of problem and the age of the client. The more focused and limited the problem being addressed, the shorter treatment can be. The more the treatment addresses healing emotional injuries, the longer it is likely to take. I provide a variety of short and long term approaches to cater for the needs of all individuals. Generally speaking, people continue counselling whilst they feel they are gaining benefit from it. There is no minimum or maximum number of sessions required, and you are free to book from session to session.
