Weekly sessions are best, in the beginning, to build a relationship of trust and safety and gain momentum with self-reflection, and positive change. I’ve noticed that when clients try to come every other week therapy rarely seems to take off of the ground and gain momentum toward change. The work the work doesn’t appear to go as deep, and the sense of safety in the therapeutic alliance doesn’t grow as strong. Sometimes clients drop out of therapy because they are not receiving the gain they had hoped they would. You get out of therapy what you put into it. Taking it seriously will only aid you in gaining success.
