HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL WE NEED?
The number of sessions depends on a range of factors given each couple is unique. On average many people attend couple counselling for between six and twelve sessions.
A key determinant is the willingness
of each person to participate in counselling, along with a sense of shared responsibility for their situation.
The majority of couples who call us for counselling are doing so for the first time, and often say it feels unbelievable that they have reached this point of crisis. They never thought that this could happen
We make it as easy as possible to call and just talk to someone
From Paul and Trish,
late 30's, 2 kids: attended 3 couples sessions:
"We found the counselling very helpful. I think we were surprised by some things that came out, issues that we didn't dare talk about.
We didn't understand that our different thinking processes created a lot of our problems. Like when he came home from work, I needed emotional support and his mind was still in the workplace.
We both thought the counsellor was very understanding and able to get us over 'bumps' in the conversation."
From Tracy and Steve,
both 38yo, were constantly fighting: attended 12 couples sessions:
"Thank you for your email. We are doing well. We are actually expecting our first child in a couple of weeks, and we couldn't be happier.
It has bought us closer together - we know that there will be some challenging times ahead but we now know how to deal with."
From Mel, 34 yo,
Together for 7 years and had just called off their wedding, this was in 2008 ; they had 8 couples sessions, recently married 2010:
"Thanks for getting in touch. Things are currently great.
My partner and I worked through our issues of communication and trust. We recently got married!"
