First,I absolutely agree w/everyone - you had every right to be upset! *Every* minute is precious. Even when I was *cheated* out of 10-15 minutes once or twice for various reasons, not completely his fault, but still..., it caused major angry discussions as I didn't even try to disguise being upset.

Not relating to your situation (thank goodness) but on this topic, get this: my former T. is in a new job(2.5 months)in outpatient psych. at one of the larger VA hospitals in the US. He told me he's had to compress 45 mins. to 20 mins.!! THAT's the craziest thing I ever heard! But not the first time I've heard it from a T.; apparently it's a growing trend in some places. Sheesh, it took me 20 mins. just to begin to get comfortable! Ridiculous, IMHO, but he's having to adapt and wondering if therapy will be as effective. I hope to ask him again in a few months how he thinks it's working. I can't imagine.
