While selecting a psychologist it is very important that you should feel comfortable with your mental health expert. We advise you to check the psychologist’s credentials, including both training and experience. During your first session with your therapist, it is very important that you should feel comfortable and connected to your therapist. Do not hesitate to raise any concerns or doubts you have in your first session. It’s the quality of your relationship between you and your therapist that will bring the positive outcome during sessions.
The length of treatment is not one size fits all. It depends upon several variable including the nature ,severity and duration of the presenting complain. Social support system also plays a key role in the progress of treatment. Therefore session varies depending on how the person responds to the treatment. Depending on the progress, a client and a therapist decides on how long the further sessions will be needed.
Sessions are 40-45 minutes. This is considered standard across clinicians. People normally see the therapist once or twice a week. Once again that really depends on the acuteness of your emotional pain and the nature of the identified problems to work on. As you start to make progress, your sessions will reduce gradually.
