While I was in England, I thought about how I would shift things once I returned to NJ. I flew back to NJ last Tuesday and began working again on Wednesday. I have once again decided to change my psychotherapy practice by offering two hour sessions when needed instead of the regular weekly meetings. After 30 years of being a psychotherapist, I have noticed that deeper healing work is more effective when you meet for a longer time and less often.
Have you noticed in a 50 min. session that you just begin to get to the real issues and it is time to stop? By the time, that you meet again, the urgency is often gone and normally we do not return to the same issue. When we work for longer periods the work is deeper and the change is more profound.
We are a culture that wants to do things quickly and get it over with. In healing work, this is not very helpful. In a time of energy and resource conservation, the added bonus is that it saves on travel time and gas expense. And I have to admit that I like changing things around so that I am always developing new neural pathways........
