It is up to you as to whether or not you want a closure session with your current therapist. Based on my own experiences, I would really recommend it (though putting it off a week probably doesn't matter one way or the other). The one time I didn't do it, I felt kinda weird when a month later I started seeing a new therapist & then had to explain how I just quit the previous one. Since then, I've taken it as good practice ending a relationship, but maybe that's just b/c I struggle with just walking away & not looking back whenever I've been unhappy with something. Even when it can't be resolved, I've found it's been a tiny bit helpful to me & often very helpful to the other person (not so much in counseling situations but friendships, dating, co-workers, classmates, etc.) to take a small amount of time to wrap things up. I usually don't book a full hour, maybe 20-30 minutes & sometimes it doesn't take the whole time even at that.
Of course, it's really up to you. If you just don't have time to fit that in to your schedule, or if something else is going on, there's no reason you have to go back for a final session. I've never heard of there being any negative consequences for not having a wrap-up session (unless your counseling was court-mandated, & I don't think it was), it just seems like a healthy, healing thing to do. But either way, we are all here to support you in your choice. Let us know what you decide & how we can support you going forward.
