So far I like all my clients.

If a client insisted on daily contact, it would have to be an emergency. Then if it could not be resolved over the phone in 10 minutes I would let them know that we need to meet 2-4 times per week for sessions if they need that much support. When the crisis is over we could cut back on sessions.

With Borderline PD clients this is an issue. Firm therapeutic boundaries are part of the treatment. I really like working with BPD clients. Most therapists don't I like the energy, the challenge, and I can meet the energy. Some therapists get overwhelmed with that much work on a client. I welcome it. I try to do whatever the client actually needs to get better. Sometimes people who insist on daily contact really need more than one session a week. I have to keep that boundary for their own treatment plan. I would let them know that it's a boundary and explain the parameters in a compassionate manner.
