It is very important for you to select a counselor whose approach and personality will fit your needs. Examine the quality of service he/she provides (professionalism, honesty, qualification) as well as your feelings the sessions bring about. Do you think that the therapist cares, respects your privacy, and capable? Do you feel comfortable working with this person? If you are not completely satisfied, give your therapist feedbacks and see if it changes anything.
Each case is unique and different. Some cases may only need a couple of sessions whereas others may take much longer. It depends on what your needs and goals are, and how committed you are to the process.
