A psychotherapy session usually lasts one hour unless there is a specific arrangement between you and your therapist. This timing of the session is important in supporting the therapist’s assessment of your behaviour – whether you tend to come late or whether you find it hard to leave for example and this information can be processed with your therapist during the sessions. Although at times hard to accept any issue needs its time to process and there is a limit to how much processing can be done at one go as that can hinder your natural growth and awareness.
