The length of therapy depends on the nature of change/healing desired and how complex or deeply entrenched your problems may be. I offer short-term, solution-focused therapy to individuals who have experienced a “bump in the road” and wish to eliminate a symptom and/or improve their functioning in one area of their lives. If this is the case, you may only require 1 or 2 sessions. I offer longer-term “transformative” therapy to individuals who seek deeper, more comprehensive change. If you seek to change a more chronic, deeply conditioned behavioural pattern, it may require 8 – 20 sessions, and sometimes longer. In most cases, if you do not begin to experience change in the first handful of sessions, ESM may not be the therapy of choice for you. If you do not start seeing improvements within these first sessions, together we can assess if you might achieve better success with another modality of therapy with another therapist.
