Generally around 6 to 20 sessions are needed for families to realise their strengths and find ways forward. For families and loved ones who are experiencing more complex difficulties however, further sessions may be needed.
Sessions can last from between 60 and 90 minutes, and intervals between each one could be several weeks at a time depending on the problems being addressed, the stage of treatment; and the needs of family members.
Ultimately all elements of family therapy, including the setting, family therapy techniques and length of sessions will result from a collaboration and mutual agreement between the therapist and family.
I provide the opportunity for an initial consultation to help establish whether my approach is right for you at this time. There is no obligation to take it further.
