They will create a helpful alliance with you so that you become self-empowered. As you strive toward your full potential, you will discover yourself becoming stronger and truer to your best self.
A session lasts fifty minutes and you will decide with your counsellor how many sessions you want. Every so often progress is reviewed to make sure that therapy is on track and that you are happy with your progress. You need to feel empowered to feel that you are taking ownership for your own mental well-being. It is a question of respecting your choices and your decisions.
