I might be wrong, but I think I've heard that classically trained analysts, especially several years ago, commonly had policies like this. It makes sense in intensive psychoanalysis--since the client comes four or five times a week, s/he represents a significant portion of the therapist's income, which can't really be made up even if the cancellation is planned in advance. In once or twice a week dynamic therapy, though, I think it's pretty unusual and kind of behind the times. In the heyday of classical analysis, it's my impression that most clients were from high socioeconomic echelons, since those were the people who could pay out of pocket for 4 sessions a week.
