It depends on many factors. Unlike many other medical health care conditions, there is no one specific answer to a procedure which could be done to you to get rid of your issues. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process between the therapist and you. Over the first few months, one should not ask the question, “Am I fixed?” Rather ask, “Am I moving in the right direction?” Spinning off of the old adage, “Psychotherapy is a journey, not a destination.”
Psychotherapy often requires a deeper examination of core issues, childhood events or past traumas. Every person is different and there is no one size fits all approach.
