That depends. Some issues such as a quick energy boost or a rise in self-confidence can be dealt with in one or two sessions. People often experience an immediate change, but discover that old ways reassert themselves over the next few weeks or months. They may find a permanent solution only after returning for a several tune-ups that address the issue at increasingly deeper and more powerful levels. Very deep, long term habits such as smoking usually require a program of several structured sessions. The toughest issues may require a commitment of return visits over many months. It is up to the client to decide on what level of change they wish to make: small improvements, significant changes, alleviation of the worst aspects of an issue, or full freedom from old negative habits and attitudes resulting in a new life of infinite possibilities.
