How many sessions will I need?
Starting therapy can sometimes feel overwhelming. Many clients arrive at their first session not really knowing what the problem is or what they need help with, but just know that things aren’t right. My job is to help you figure that out.
At Hannah Paskin Therapy, I’m not your average Therapist, I offer a combination of straight-talking and empathy. I take a practical problem solving approach, will tell you where you are going wrong if you’re not figuring it out for yourself, and will give my opinion if you ask for it.
Sessions are proactive and are focused on increasing your self-insight and teaching effective strategies to overcome your problem.
Due to the way in which I work, typically clients will need less sessions than they might with other therapists. Most of my clients attend around 12 sessions in total, some attend as little as 4-6 if they are willing to work intensely and are committed to significant effort between appointments. There are some clients I work with over a longer period if their problems are more complex or longstanding, or they wish to put change in place at a slower pace. I have a number of clients who will choose to access check-in sessions with me every few months to ensure they are staying on track.
