My practice is highly EMDR focused, even with couples. I also specialize in intensive therapy.

With intensive sessions, the amount of time you spend in therapy could very possibly be just a few days. Intensives are usually 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in afternoon for 3-4 days in a row.
What are the advantages of intensive therapy?

treatment efficiency
reduced risk of treatment-related destabilization
reduced risk of life crises disrupting treatment
rapid results which preclude further suffering or harm from the symptoms

Compared to other trauma therapy, intensive therapy roughly halves treatment time because effects are being optimized with longer sessions.
