Re: phone call policies redhouse

In reply to phone call policies, posted by redhouse on July 10, 2007, at 10:40:24

My therapist swears he would rather I call him than get all upset. But admittedly, he knows I don't call him excessively per his own boundaries.

At first, he was rather short on the phone, and he's still not really good at it. But after I determined that he felt he let phone privileges get out of hand with some clients, and reassured him that I was willing to pay for calls of any length, he started trying to be more open to calls.

I usually don't call him after six, or before 8:30. But twice I've called him very late with real life problems that I needed support for, and he was very very helpful.

I think it helps to clarify it with your own therapist, since call policies vary so widely. When you do ask about it, it might be helpful to clarify if you're willing to pay for out of session contact of any length.
