Default Re: Is therapist running 1 minute late an issue?

It would only bother me if she didn't make up the minute at the end. My first T was often a minute or so late, but she'd end our session on time, and I'd always feel cheated. I could never tell her though.

I think itís a bit shocking and shameful when Tís do back to back appointments. Thereís no way they can be at their best, fully present and attuned when they work like that. My old T used to do that at times, and looking back I realise she was sometimes kind of on automatic. She also got defensive when I brought stuff up, instead of being curious, reflective, interested, gentle and accepting. I donít like that your T compared you to other clients.

This would have been a biggie for me too back in the day, doesn't mean you have a problem.

"Where is he?"
"Is he even going to come?"
"Have I got the time wrong?"

In the four years I did see my T, he did actually miss/ forget my session appointment three times.
