Psychiatrist:

It is generally recommended to follow a holistic therapeutic approach - so to combine medication and therapy is a good idea in many patients.

The type of therapy and duration thereof is something which is determined by the therapist and patient together.

I am not sure about the cost of an individual therapy session with a Psychologist, but think it is around R 500 per hour.

Remember that there are psychologists in Government Clinics too, where the cost would be much less.
