How often will I have sessions
Generally, therapy involves sessions once a week to start with and as you progress with the therapy that can then go to fortnightly or longer depending on how intensive the treatment is. Then it is advised to follow up with maintenance sessions as you feel you need them. It is difficult to place an exact amount of session as each individual case is unique.
What Our Clients Are Saying
I have suffered anxiety for several years and never knew half of the strategies that were taught to me
from Ros. I was made feel welcome and like I was a real person.The ongoing support is outstanding, and the price of a consultation is very reasonable. This reflects in the passion that Ros has at Tranquility Counselling.
I needed someone to just listen and support me and my situation, from the moment I met Ros and was
made to feel comfortable. Ros listens, advises and is always there. Nothing was to hard to talk about and I would recommend everyone to go see this amazing counselor.
I have had the pleasure of having counselling in Tranquility Counselling Services and my first impressions
was a warm caring feeling. I suffer with anxiety and after the lengthy discussion with Ros I was made to
feel worthy. Thank you for your ongoing support.
