Q.How Long are sessions?

On average, sessions will be 50-55 minutes in length unless scheduled a longer session depending on the need. If the session time is extended, there’s an extra charge.

Q.Can we extend sessions?

Yes, Therapist find longer couples and family sessions beneficial for a variety of reasons, such as being able to do more in-depth assessment and treatment, to have more time to work with a high- conflict family and resolve conflicts in session, to allow for a larger number of session participants, or for certain treatment types such as Gottman Method Couples Therapy. In addition, when clients are not able to come regularly or must come from great distance, longer sessions allow more to be accomplished in fewer sessions.

Q.How much does counseling cost?

Individual sessions are 1000Rs per 50-55 minute session.

Family/ Couple sessions are 1200Rs per 50-55 minute session.

Family/ Couple Session 1500Rs Per 90 min Session

Q.How often do I need to be seen?

It is highly recommend that you attend counseling on a weekly basis. Being seen weekly, especially initially, will help us establish a comfortable, working relationship and set a foundation for where you are and where you want to be in regards to your goals for counseling. Once you experience improvement and can maintain your positive changes, Pune Counseling &Therapy can most likely recommend decreasing the frequency of your sessions. If you cannot be seen on a weekly basis, Pune Counseling &Therapy will encourage meeting weekly for the first 3 to 4 sessions and then moving to bi-weekly.

Q.How long does the counseling process take?

Here at Pune Counseling &Therapy, we believe counseling will take as long as it takes. You definitely have control over your time in counseling but every person’s progress is so unique and individualized that I do not like giving a time frame on the process. On average, most clients attend for a minimum of 6 to 8 sessions. Many continue on, identifying revised goals or new goals. Others simply need additional time to meet their goals. We can discuss your unique experience more in depth after an initial session.

Q.I want to bring my child/teen into see you. Am I a part of his/her therapy?

As a parent, we rely heavily on your input concerning your child. We believe parents are the experts on their own children and you are invaluable to the process. Initially, we would request that we will sit down with you for a parent consultation (30 to 40 minutes in length) to discuss your concerns and desires regarding your child. After this, we would spend the majority of our time with your child while still meeting with you, as the parent, at the beginning of each session or every other session depending on progress (in the duration of 10 to 15 minutes).

Cancel or reschedule ?

Ans. If you have booked an individual session they cannot. They can attend if you are booking a family session. Please refer to family session or couple session fees.

Q. If I am feeling suicidal thoughts what should I do ?

Ans. Please visit nearest hospital or Psychiatrist immediately.

Q. Can other family members attend the session?
