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).

Some of my clients turn out to be more intensive, long-tern individual psychotherapy cases. If you have never taken a long term approach to be involved in your own growth and healing you may benefit greatly from this type of counseling. Many people withdraw from their therapy too quickly and don't take the time or commitment to stay connected in the therapeutic relationship.
