In reply to T is shortening sessions!, posted by LauraG on September 27, 2004, at 21:18:46

I think that my reaction to reduced session length would be to get upset and of course to wonder why on earth that had to happen for. My experience of sessions is that they last 60 minutes, but by the sounds of it I am lucky there. My guess would be that it is typical to schedule clients one after the other so a 50 minute session would allow 10 minutes for writing up session notes, going to the bathroom etc. Maybe your T thinks things would run more smoothly if she had 15 minutes instead of 10.

If this is the case then you may find that the 'quality' of sessions improves. Perhaps perhaps...

I would suggest that you ask her why she is doing it.

I think that your response is understandable, but it may be more extreme due to events in your past. It may be helpful to examine those, but that is not to undermine your understandable reaction at all.
