  • How does counselling look like?
    Initial 1-2 sessions are focused on building rapport, which lays the foundation for a solid therapeutic relationship. In the 5-6 sessions that follow, you may see signs of clarity and change. The frequency of these sessions solely depends upon the disclosure of the concerns shared and the therapist’s recommendations. It is important to schedule the sessions in advance to avoid any last minute hassles. The day and time of the sessions will be scheduled on mutual convenience. To have a deeper understanding of the issues, it is recommended to have face-to-face sessions. However, in these millennial times, online platforms have also proven to be beneficial in therapy as it brings privacy, accessibility and makes it hassle-free. However, it is my responsibility to inform that the online session is not a quick fix to your concerns and may take more time to show results as it lacks in-person interactions. The general frequencey of session goes from "once a week" to "once in 15 days" and towards the end "once in a month" and then the "closure". *The frequency of therapy/counselling may wary on case to case basis"
