How often is therapy ?
The frequency of therapy follows your availability.

How long does it take?
Therapy takes as long as a person needs, and is motivated.
It can be relatively brief if the issue you want to work on resolves soon. It tends to be open ended when the focus is on-going personal growth.

Counselling
Counselling is a supportive, brief and focussed treatment to help you get through a rough patch or pressing situation.
It is often once a week, but can be intermittent and irregular, as the need arises.
Psychotherapy
This type of therapy is a supportive encounter with underlying patterns of behaviour and emotional expression.
As the therapeutic relationship deepens, so does experiential learning.
It is once a week.

Lay psychoanalysis
This works when a strong therapeutic relationship has been established, and your commitment is for at least a year.
Sessions can be once, twice, or three times a week.
This type of therapy is a “road less travelled”, but one that has lasting value for people determined to allow deep structural shifts to emerge within a supportive therapeutic relationship.
