How often you attend therapy sessions can vary depending on your specific needs and circumstances. Regularly attending therapy is recommended, and many people find that once a week or bi-weekly works best for them. However, the frequency may vary depending on the severity of the issues, your level of distress, and your goals for seeking therapy.
Working with your therapist to determine a schedule that works for you and your unique situation is essential. They can help you decide on the frequency of sessions and adjust it as needed based on your progress and changing needs. It’s also important to remember that therapy is a process, and progress can take time, so staying committed to the process and attending sessions regularly to achieve the best possible outcomes is important.
