Why Weekly Treatment Sessions Are So Important

A beginning is a very delicate time.

One doesn’t need to be a clinical psychologist to understand the inherent truth in the quotation above. Whether we are discussing a nascent fitness regimen or starting regular treatment, future success is often determined by a consistent commitment to the process.

For our part at Blair Wellness Group, we seek to educate our readers about the importance of establishing a consistent routine when beginning treatment with Dr. Cassidy Blair, our renowned Clinical Psychologist based in Beverly Hills. Part of these educational efforts includes the duty to set the record straight regarding the importance of weekly treatment sessions. Regardless of whether you, dear reader, become a client of Dr. Blair or otherwise, it’s crucial that you understand the required commitment it takes from a client in order to achieve a positive outcome. 

In other words, going to treatment once a month and hoping for the best isn’t viable — it’s setting yourself up for avoidable frustration!

If you are interested in learning more about the significance of regular treatment sessions in concordance with Dr. Blair’s approach to psychology and mental health, by all means, keep reading. We trust that you will find this article enlightening and beneficial. 

Why Weekly Appointments Are Crucial

Like anything worth achieving in life, accomplishments take hard work; achieving positive outcomes from regular treatment is no exception to this rule. Treatment is much more like a marathon than a sprint; it takes an intentional strategy rooted in consistent effort to see positive change come about. 

Now, the beginning of treatment is a very delicate time. It is then that introductions are made, goals and objectives are identified, and a harmonious rapport is built with your psychologist. These are the basic elements required to create a platform on which your personal success will be built. However, if treatment sessions occur less often, say…once a month, it will take much longer for the foundation to take hold.

Additionally, less frequent treatment appointments quite clearly allow for more time between sessions. This can have a detrimental impact on the effectiveness of the methods your psychologist will teach you. Whether you are receiving performance coaching, treatment for anxiety, or see a psychologist for relationship difficulties, the principle remains: the more often you meet with your psychologist, the more progress you will typically be able to make. 

So, why are we so ardent about regular, weekly treatment from the outset of treatment sessions? In our experience, there are very few clients who start out with a monthly schedule, try it out for a few sessions, and then transition to weekly sessions. Of course, it happens, but we would always recommend starting out by forming positive, long-lasting habits in order to see the results you desire. 

Fitness As A Metaphor

Here in Beverly Hills, it’s hard to take a walk without seeing at least a handful of joggers. It’s even more difficult to go on a drive and not see numerous gyms, yoga studios, and outdoor fitness classes taking place in a park. Suffice it to say, we are all about physical fitness here in LA. 

If you’ve ever started a workout program to lose weight or achieve a certain goal, you likely already know how crucial consistency is to the success of your program. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to build muscle mass by lifting weights but once every few weeks. It’s even tougher to lose weight when you are only eating well a few days out of the month. 

Mental health is very much like physical health in this regard. It’s vital to be consistent and intentional in your efforts from the beginning. But here is where the metaphor breaks down (and that’s good news for you): most people don’t need daily treatment — once a week is a great starting point and should set you up for success when working with a Licensed Clinical Psychologist such as Dr. Blair. 

Don’t Be Too Hard On Yourself

While we want to be clear about what it takes to achieve positive outcomes in treatment, we also wish to leave no room for confusion when it comes to the measure of understanding and grace with which we treat our clients here at Blair Wellness Group. 

Positive outcomes aren’t achieved overnight, no matter the skill of the psychologist or regularity of sessions. Rather, it takes an investment of both time and emotion to make progress. Dr. Blair utilizes a uniquely effective approach to treatment in Beverly Hills, having worked with high-level executives and professionals from a diverse background throughout Los Angeles. 

No matter if she is providing treatment for someone with an addiction, disorder, or even an unknown condition, she operates with a standard of excellence and sensitivity when providing patient-centered treatment and care.
