Can I decide just to stop therapy?

You have the right to stop therapy at any time without further financial, legal, or moral obligations, other than those already incurred. However, it is a good idea to discuss your plans to end therapy well in advance so that you and I can discuss your progress and wrap up any lose ends. The longer we have worked together, the more sessions we should plan to use to bring our work to a close.

Some people decide to stop suddenly if difficult issues come up in therapy or with the therapist. Rather than just quitting at such times, it is best to discuss your feelings with your therapist
