The counselling process differs for each individual and the number of sessions required will depend upon your unique circumstances and goals. A treatment schedule typically involves weekly or fortnightly 50-minute appointments. The goals of the consultations are arrived at by mutual collaboration between the psychologist and the individual. For children, the collaboration includes working together with the parents. Some people resolve their difficulties in a small number of sessions, while others need assistance on a longer term basis.
