How long does therapy take?
As every individual is unique, there is no set length for therapy. It can last anywhere from one session to several months or even years. The individual’s response to therapy and rate of progress will determine the duration of therapy.
How often does one come to therapy?
The process of therapy is about promoting change and it takes regularity and consistency to encourage growth. Therapy works best when clients attend weekly or bi-weekly sessions.
How long does it take to see results?
This depends on therapy goals and the individual’s motivation and effort to achieve them. One’s progress can be evaluated by asking questions like:
- Is my life changing for the better – at work, at home, with my friends?
- Am I meeting the goals I set with my therapist?
- Do I feel like I understand myself better?
- Am I more confident?
How does one choose the right therapist?
It’s important to share a good rapport with your therapist and feel comfortable with them and their therapy process. To know if a therapist is a match, ask questions like:
- Does my therapist genuinely care about me and my problems?
- Does my therapist accept me for who I am?
- Do I feel that I can be open and honest with front of them?
- Do they listen without criticism or judgment?
How does one set up an appointment?
The best way to set up an appointment is by calling on the numbers provided and speaking with my assistant to schedule a session. If you wish to talk to me briefly before setting up the appointment, that can be arranged.
How long is each session?
Sessions last for 45 minutes. Usually clients schedule weekly appointments in advance.
Do you do sessions by phone or by Zoom?
I do sessions phone and on Zoom, depending on what the situation demands.
What are the rules of confidentiality?
The relationship between the therapist and client is confidential. In exceptional cases of a client being in danger to themselves or others, confidentiality may be broken to ensure the safety of all involved.
