Opened sockets. Bash

Hi! I need to know how can I get the amount of open sockets per active processes iniciated in the current session.
However in order to get the number I can not use any command as netstat, I must find out the number by accessing to the /proc directory
per session refers to the relationship established between the user and the operating system after logging. (One terminal)

all file descriptors can be found under /proc/<PID>/fd ; each open socket has an associated descriptor and the entry looks somehow like this:
$ sudo readlink /proc/6196/fd/3
