What happens in Psychological Counselling Sessions?

  • Client and counsellor sit in private and engage in a lot of talking and listening. Each session typically lasts between 40 minutes and one hour. Sometimes just a single session is sufficient for a client's needs, but more usually client and counsellor continue to meet for several weeks or even months. Client and counsellor plan together how often and for how long to meet. Nowadays many psychological counsellors prefer to work with clients over a small number of highly focused sessions and then to offer an "open door" policy. This means that clients are free to return for more sessions if and when they require them, knowing that there is a reliable professional service available and that they will always be made welcome.
  • Couples meet with the counsellor in the same way and may use the sessions to better understand how they communicate and react to each other’s needs. Many couples find attending alternate individual and joint sessions to be especially helpful.
