What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Our first session will be focused on understanding your challenges and your goals. After that, we will work collaboratively to find new ways to manage and relate to the pain that comes along with living.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Seeking therapy does not mean that you are incapable of managing your life or solving problems on your own. It means that you are seeking guidance from a trained professional for personal growth and well being .It's a normal process for Individuals to grow and change throughout their life time. Seeking professionals services to facilitate self growth does not make you weak or flawed.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
Your length of time spent in therapy is dependent on a number of variables:
-The issue you're addressing
-Severity of symptoms
-How long you've been experiencing symptoms
-Consistency of attending sessions
There are no guarantees therapy will work. And often times things tend to get worse before they get better. This is because by looking more closely at our issues, we stir them up.
At the same time, most people find therapy to be helpful.
Clients often report relief and changes anywhere between 5 to 20 sessions.
Occasionally, clients will want to explore other areas in their lives and stay in therapy longer.
Clients see the most progress when they attend sessions consistently. Generally, once per week is best. This allows you time to process our sessions and experiment with new things during the week. It is convenient and not too costly.
Once a month may be too infrequent. Monthly meetings may tend to become reports on what has happened since you last met, which is unlikely to be useful.
Less frequent or inconsistently attending sessions tends to be more about putting out fires, than long-term changes.
If your schedule does not permit you to attend sessions on a regular basis, I strongly encourage you to either wait until you have the time or really challenge yourself to make the time. The more consistent you are, the more positive changes you'll see, the less time you'll spend in therapy, and the more money you'll save.
