I've always assumed that 50 minutes was the norm and that's what I've always had. However, I've also wondered how anyone could regroup, write notes etc. with just a 10 minute interlude. My therapist takes notes during our sessions so she doesn't have to do that, but still.... Whether I think 45 minutes would be adequate depends on how hard a time I'm having communicating. When I can't seem to talk alot, 50 minutes seems an eternity. When were having a really productive exchange, the time flies by. 50 minutes does seem pretty short, at least for psychodynamic therapy.

As to the other issue, I think you have every right and then some to be angry that this switch has been made mid-stream. As a long time patient, you are minimally entitled to a reason. About a year ago, my therapist raised her fees, and she went to great pains to explain to me why she had to do that.
