T is shortening sessions!

Posted by LauraG on September 27, 2004, at 21:18:46

Last week my T told me she is shortening sessions by 5 min. to 45 min (they are now 50min, which I thought was standard). This is the best place for me to ask, how long are your sessions with your T's?

I got very angry at her for shortening sessions. I've been going to her for 2 1/2 years. Apparently I had "a big reaction". I'd be surprised if I was her only client to get mad. I'm not sure if I was more angry that she is making our time together shorter or that she would not tell me why she was doing it. I guess she doesn't really owe me an explanation. It just seemed that she didn't really care that I was hurt or angry about it. She never tells me she cares about me (I saw how other T's express that to some of you in another thread, and I wish I had that too). She only calls me if I call and ask her to, not to check on how I'm doing. Sorry.... She's a good T I think. Reading some of the posts here makes me wish she did a little more. She has VERY strict boundaries, I think even no touching. She never shook my hand when we first met.

Anyway, did I have the right to be mad? It feels like she thinks I overreacted due to something in my past.
