How long does therapy take?

It is difficult to predict how long therapy will take. Usually therapy ends when you and I decide that you have made satisfactory progress in achieving your goals. Some people achieve this in just a few sessions; others continue therapy for years before they feel they are ready to leave.

Generally, symptom-focused therapy, such as overcoming an anger problem, is shorter, while an uncovering, insight-oriented therapy takes much longer.
