3 individual sessions per week

Concerned about the 3 individual sessions per week provided by a clinician. Not exactly sure there is any therapeutic value of the  3 individual sessions per week. It’s possible that 1 session a week is as valuable.  The requirement of the 3 sessions and the duration is not necessary. If treatment is to be more individualized then requiring the 3 sessions per week to contradictory to the goal of providing indiviudalized treatment.
