A session lasts for 50 minutes and is usually on a once-weekly basis. In some cases it can be arranged to have more than one session per week. The length of counselling is usually 'open ended' (with no set ending date) but I can also offer shorter term counselling of between 6 to 18 weeks.
The number of sessions can vary according to circumstance.
