What should you expect from a counselling session?

- working towards psychological wellbeing, fulfilling relationships and a balanced family life
We are often asked how many sessions will be required. This varies depending on the unique circumstances of each individual, couple or family. You’re welcome to talk to your counsellor or psychologist about how long they believe it will take for you to achieve the change you want to make.
