How long does it take?

The psychotherapist and the client usually meet once or twice a week. The sessions are normally fifty minutes, though this varies according to the particular training of the therapist.

The length of time the therapy will last depends on many factors. Because this form of therapy helps individuals to come to know themselves at a deeper level, to understand unconscious processes affecting their feelings and behavior, it is a longer-term therapy. But differences are felt and changes are achieved along the way as the therapy proceeds.
