FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will therapy take?
Length of therapy depends on the personal needs of the client. Some clients require a relatively short amount of time (up to 100 sessions) for therapeutic change to occur, where many clients require a substantially longer time (several years). Some clients work on themselves for a length of time, take a break and come back for more work when they decide they want to experience change at a deeper level. Clients are free to determine when they feel they have reached a point where they are ready to discontinue. It is also important and respectful to consider a child’s thoughts and feelings about readiness to discontinue therapy. Once it has been determined to discontinue therapy, it is very important for both adults and children to have a closure session at the end of therapy. Endings are difficult for most human beings and it is important to take the time to acknowledge the work accomplished and the special relationship that exists between client and therapist.
