For those who have done therapy or are in therapy, how long have or were you in therapy for? I started therapy around a year back thinking that a year would be sufficient. 12 months later, I feel that I am only halfway where I'd like to be. I am aware that therapy can take years. Just shocked/surprised by the time I have taken.

i’ve been in therapy on and off since puberty. i intend to stay with it more or less indefinitely- it helps, i can afford it, and the growth i have achieved through therapy is worth it. therapy doesn’t always have to be because something is “wrong,” we can all benefit from it!

Decades off and on. LOL. There’s always more to work through. You shouldn’t feel pressured to “finish” therapy after a defined period of time. It takes however long it takes. You’ll recognize the end point when you get to it (and your therapist likely will too).

My partner and I were in couples counseling for six years with the same person. We grew so much together and even though we stopped, I can see even the small impacts it had on us.
I think it also depends on the reason you’re in therapy. Check out Lori Gottlieb’s “Maybe You Should Talk to Someone” - she gives some good tidbits about therapy timing.

Thanks!

It definitely helps. But there are things I have to pursue on my own too. It depends what you are working toward but for example check out books like Do the work by Nicole lePera. I also listen to podcasts that help me such as Mindset Mentor, School of Greatness.
