Arrrgh.

Does he do this type of thing often? If not it might have been something really important. Sometimes my therapist explains at the beginning of a session that he might have to take a call. That's true of me too, sometimes, so I can't get too upset. But the least he could do is explain it briefly and apologize for the disruption of your session. If he does it often, I think I'd definitely feel disrespected.

Maybe whatever it was was still going on later when he spoke to you and he wasn't at his best?

I'm not trying to give him an out. It's rude to do that without any sort of explanation and you're right to tell him so. :(

Therapists and phones. Don't they give lessons in therapy etiquette anymore? My therapist and I were idly discussing it the other day, and he said in a sort of wondering voice that he guessed it was a bigger deal to clients than it was to therapists. Well... Good grief. I had to almost laugh at that. *Everything* is more charged on our end of the sofa. Otherwise therapy wouldn't work so well.

I hope he comes through for you next time. What is your relationship like in general?

I've got to say that my therapist finally came through for me and now turns his cell phone off at the beginning of each session. So it can finally seep in.
