Re: the 50-minute hour...

In reply to the 50-minute hour..., posted by twinleaf on September 8, 2007, at 22:17:26

I have 45 minute sessions although they sometimes go over to 50 minutes - only once to 55 minutes. It's interesting, sometimes that time flies by and before I know it he's saying "It's time. Until next time..." and wishes me a good week or weekend - times like that I wish the session were a little longer. Other times, time goes slow and then I'm glad the sessions aren't longer.

I hate it when I'm sort of in the middle of something when the session ends - you lose your flow and it's hard to 'hold on' until the next time. It's also weird when I leave as he opens the door from the therapy room to his hallway, shakes my hand and then mostly closes the door behind me, leaving me in his hallway (his practice is in his home), so I put on my coat and make my own way out. I kind of wish he would stay with me until I actually left his house - I know it's stupid but it makes me feel a bit like he doesn't want to see me for any longer than he has to. I never see his other patients/clients - he doesn't have clients back-to-back.

Zen, I think it's great how flexible your T has been. I know mine sees one client for 90 minute sessions but that is because she has a long way to travel and only comes once in two weeks.
