Psychotherapy is the most popular and common form of therapy and counseling. Many people find that talking about their challenges in a constructive and thoughtful manner can be helpful in figuring out how to move forward with their life and reconcile various life events. It allows each person to go at their own pace to take in those things that may be difficult to see or address in large chunks.
Psychotherapy can be done once and up to three times a week depending on the client and their circumstances. The frequency can also decrease to twice or once per month.
There are a number of theories that a psychotherapist can use to help their client find clarity and peace: self-psychology, drive theory, object-relations theory, Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), Jungian, relational theory, and interpersonal therapy, just to name a few.
While I am versed in all of the above and then some, one isn't better than another; some therapists simply have a preference for a particular treatment modality. My preference is self-psychology and Jungian theory but I use the best-suited modality to meet the needs of each client/patient.
When using psychotherapy, or any other treatment for that matter, the therapist can not predict how treatment will go or how many sessions a client will need before they are "healed". Each case is different and the progress is completely dependent on the client. My experience is that even though a client may realize a pattern or faulty thought, it may take some time for it to sink in and affect change in their life. On the other hand, some clients are very determined and open to making changes in their life right now and see immediate effects.
If someone doesn't see the effects right away, it doesn't mean that they aren't motivated. It could simply mean that they take things in more slowly or there are other blocks that need to be addressed in order for things to come together for them. There isn't a right or wrong way.
