Another important issue for you and your therapist to discuss is when and how to end treatment. Although you may end treatment at any time, we strongly encourage you to discuss this decision with your therapist at least one session in advance. This will give you and your therapist an opportunity to discuss the reasons for your decision and bring treatment to an end. Even after treatment ends, “check-in” or follow-up sessions are available to address further concerns, if and when they develop. Your therapist, like your family physician, is an ongoing resource for you to use as necessary.
