What to expect from therapy

Therapy involves working collaborative with your therapist to develop goals for your health and wellbeing  and to work together on reaching these goals. Sessions are usually 50 minutes although may at times last as long as an hour. The first session of therapy involves exploring what is currently going on in a clients life, both the struggles and strengths and an exploration of some of the past experiences that may have contributed to current struggles. How much to share is always guided by the client, it is okay to take a few sessions to build a sense of trust with your therapist. The duration of therapy varies a lot. It may be short term 2-10 sessions for goals around building increased wellbeing or managing struggles that have been fairly short term. Medium term therapy might be 20-40 sessions to work on more long term concerns or multiple life goals. At times, as is the case in complex trauma or long standing mental health struggles  longer term therapy may be preferred. These are guidelines only and can be discussed at any time.
