Because we are multi-facetted, and life is too, therapy can continue for as long, or as little as you choose. You are in control at all times when deciding the amount of therapy that you feel ok with. Setting goals at the start can work for some individuals, however, one size does not fit all. Therapy can also depend on the complexity of the problem/s. As life goes in phases, it can be helpful to know that therapy is there during those different phases; childhood, adolescence, college, university, work, relationships, having children, marriage, loss, death, transitions, etc. Therapy is there, if and when you may need it.
