How many sessions will I need and how often?

Some clients may only need 6-8 sessions, and others may wish to have open ended sessions depending on their level of need. Everyone is individual, however I do recommend 6 sessions initially, and where possible at the beginning for these to be weekly for the client, in order for you to get the most benefit from your counselling.

 

Again this is something that we can discuss together in the initial session and review on a regular basis.
