My understanding is that it isn't uncommon for therapists who assign a client certain time periods. Because those therapists only accept enough clients to fill the available time periods, and so the payment is for the time slot, and calculations are based on a time period for a year, divided up. I guess it leads to a steadier income for them.

My therapist makes no pretense of making appointments more than a week or two in advance, although he does mentally hold my usual time slots for me. So it's easier for him to move people around. It leads to a much more unstable income, and a reluctance to take vacations. But since he mostly does short term stuff, it's probably the best way to practice for him.
