Face-to-face sessions are 45-55 minutes. Clients can schedule longer sessions if they would like to do so. Some clients have found it helpful, for instance, to schedule two-hour sessions every other week instead of meeting for one hour each week. Longer sessions provide the opportunity for more to be accomplished. Talk with your therapist about your specific scheduling needs and goals for counseling. Your therapist will help you develop a schedule that will work best for your specific needs.
