HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED? Depending on your particular needs, the average number of hourly sessions varies from 8 to 15. However, some clients only need 1 to 5 sessions if their issues are very specific. Others choose to have more long-term therapy with less frequent sessions over a longer period of time. The time you'll need in therapy is discussed with you in your first session and there is no commitment. With some initial guidance, you make appointments as you wish.
WHAT DOES TREATMENT USUALLY INVOLVE? Psychologists at the psychology practice utilise evidence-based treatment interventions. This means that the therapeutic tools that we use are supported by up-to-date clinical research and have been shown to have significant impact in helping or improving peoples' lives. The treatment approach we incorporate depends on the needs of the client but common therapy interventions are Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal and Counselling Therapy, as well as Narrative Therapy and Self Psychology.
