I'm sorry about your situation, LauraG. I hear that 45-50 mins is pretty standard, though. I never really understood that logic: something as intense as therapy should be at least 90 mins, unless it's more than one session per week. But, that's just my opinion.

As for me, I see my T at the Uni where I'm a grad student. I usually get a whole hour, sometimes 5-15 mins over. Tonight though, I "only" got 45 mins. I haven't seen her in 2 weeks, and tonight's session was pretty light, I guess, and I didn't say much, so....It still kind of bugged me, though. This doesn't happen often, but sometimes it does; usually during sessions where I hardly talk at all. Then, conversely, during the (rare) sessions I'm a bit more talkative, she usually ends up going over the hour. Hm....reward vs punishment? It feels that way...But I probably won't bring it up unless it happens with some regularity.

I think your T should at least give you an explanation, though.

Good luck.
