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

I rarely called my ex-therapist. I think I called him maybe four times in two years. He never charged for leaving him a message or talking to him on the phone, but right before I dumped him, all of a sudden out of know where he charged me (without notice) $80 for a 30 second phone message and $80 for an emergency phone call. It was right after I stopped ECT, and I had called the ECT doc too.

I asked my current therapist, and he said he doesn't charge unless it gets excessive--phone calls or emails. I have never called him. I hate talking on the phone and I can't see him and fantasy is he is making faces. I know that is not true, but I have emailed him of late due to some crises stuff in my life and our not being able to have all our sessions. He has told me to go ahead with this, but if it interferred with my "talking" in therapy, then he would change things I think. Right now he would just want to wonder why it was easier and then we would have to explore my fantasy of him making faces. Well I guess I now have something to bring up tomorrow when I see him.

Long and short, I had to ask the new one. I have no idea what the old therapist would have said up front about phone calls and emails.
