New Clients. Probable Length of Therapy.

How long does therapy take?

The length of therapy varies quite a bit depending on the person and the nature of the person’s problem. Many factors come into play. For example:

  1. Whether the problem is simple or complicated

  2. Whether the problem developed recently, or has been chronic or long-standing

  3. Whether you have a lot of support from significant others, or very little support

  4. Whether you put a lot of work into changing the problem outside of therapy, or very little

Also, sometimes during the course of therapy, the nature of the problem itself can change. When this happens, it may affect the amount of time needed to experience relief. When problems are fairly straightforward, therapy may be effective in 8 sessions or fewer. For more complex issues, therapy may last several months to several years.
