I've been in therapy for about 3 years recently. And before that I'd had short stints (say, 6 or 8 sessions) with a couple of different Ts.

I think it would be very hard, though, for a lot of Ts to give any estimate of how long therapy might "take". It kind of depends on what you're hoping to get out of it. If you have a very specific thing to overcome, and a clear definition of what overcoming it would look like, then that's one thing. But I think it's more common to not really know what's wrong, and what being "cured" would look like. So, then therapy could take as long as you want it to. Because, let's face it, we probably all have things we could learn about ourselves, no matter how much therapy we've been through.

I am currently continuing therapy even though I could probably do without it. I'm on good meds which have helped with my obsessions and anxiety. And I've changed a lot of things in my life so that I feel a lot more comfortable with myself. But I'm fascinated by the process, and have plenty of history that I'd love to understand better, and am not quite ready to give up having someone really listen to me. So, I'm not done yet.
