Therapy can give you support, validation, coping skills, and strategies to change your perspective or your behaviours. It can give you a better understanding of yourself and your relationships. It can give you greater peace of mind and help you tolerate difficult feelings and situations. Psychotherapists help clients facilitate and deepen their own healing process. They provide feedback, guidance and psycho-education, rather than advice or answers.
It really depends on the individual. For some, a short period is all that's needed and for others, therapy begins a process that can take years. Therapy is most effective when you are willing to take it beyond the time you spend with your therapist and into your daily life.
In the beginning, once a week is recommended to create a foundation, followed by less often if desired. Scheduling often evolves over time.
