Your comfort and success are important!
The most important criteria of "therapy" is a feeling of validation, and knowing that your therapist, or guide, or mentor, or whatever label you give them is open to hearing and listening --being with you in your situation, supporting you to find the solution that brings solace, peace, serenity and joy to the quality of your life, which I call a "wellness" philosophy-- with common sense.
Therapy takes as long as there is a healthy measure of engagement between the client and
therapist. An ethical therapist will prompt movement, but ultimately is a choice the client
has the right to make to determine when they feel therapy is complete. Psychotherapy is a
method of promoting awareness to create change, it is provocative, inquisitive and can be
of great assistance in moving an individual or couple out of the same patterns of behavior
