How long should I have therapy for?

You may have a sense of how long you wish to work in therapy for, but if not this will be explored at the initial consultation. The therapist may suggest short-term or longer-term work, depending on what it is you want to work on in therapy. For example, you may agree to have a number of sessions, or to have sessions without fixing an end date. In any case you are always free to end sessions at any time you choose.
