What are therapy sessions like?
For the best possible progress and treatment effectiveness, a minimum of one session per week is essential. After considerable progress is made, sessions are reduced to every 2-3 weeks until goals are consistently maintained and your issues have been resolved. The goal is to resolve the issues as quickly as possible. The average amount of sessions is 25-30, depending on the intensity and complexity of issues.
