Many people report experiencing some relief after just one psychotherapy session. A psychotherapist offers you immediate support and a viewpoint from someone who is not emotionally over-involved. That's why a psychotherapist can be helpful-- they do not have an personal emotional investment in the decisions that the client makes. A caring psychotherapist genuinely wants a client to be healthy and happy, but does not try to persuade a client to make a particular decision (unless a matter of safety is at stake).
