  1. You can also tell them that you’ll do your best to do what they want this session. That they are free to then book another session when it suits them.

    If they are asked to decide each time it can assist with not breeding dependance (though this may be important, it just needs very clear understandings I think).

  2. Sure, I think this is a good approach, taking each session individually, it may help both counsellor and client to make the greatest investment in the session.

    I think most clients do need and want an ongoing process though… and some may well interpret the ‘one session at a time’ approach as that they do not really have a problem, or the therapist doesn’t want to see them again!

    Just another way of saying that every client is different.
