Ask the psychologist.
In general an initial appointment can last one hour or longer. Follow up appointments can last 45 minutes to one hour.
Usually 1–2 hours because it’s evaluation. One should see a psychiatrist or psychologist after a complete medical internist work up. After that, one hour, which agreed on by mental health workers between 50–60 minuets. Occasionally some patient need more time because of need rather than OCD patient which they want to be in control!
An appointment with a psychologist usually lasts 45 to 55 minutes.

Usually 45 minutes. Can last 60 minutes, but I would imagine it to be 35-45 minutes.
Generally 1 to 2 hours depending on what type of testing is done
