How long does counselling take?

Counselling Services for Waterloo Region


This is a tricky one to answer as it truly depends on people's histories, support systems, time commitments, and goals. Counselling can take a handful of sessions, 6 months, even a year or more, depending on your needs. This is something we can discuss at your first session or at your free consultation.

One thing that I can say is that a large part of counselling takes place outside of sessions. While an hour of therapy can be enlightening or relieving, it's up to you to put strategies into practice in order to create change in your life. This is certainly something that will help the counselling process move along more quickly.
