The words “short-term” have to do with the focus of treatment as well as the number of sessions used to achieve desired goals. Since this approach is not devoted to finding out why you became stuck, less time is spent examining your past. The work is more about present goals and how to have your commitments reflect your deeper values.

Five sessions are generally recommended. These sessions are designed to form the basis of your independent work. Follow up sessions are available if you choose to do additional work on specific skills.
