Excerpt

Given the discomfort patients with schizoid personality show in relation to emotional closeness, one should limit the frequency of sessions to no more than once or twice weekly. Some patients with schizotypal personality disorder work well with a greater frequency of visits, partly because they may exhibit depressive features that can be alleviated and better monitored by the more frequent meetings. Some are even amenable to a psychoanalytically oriented therapy using a thrice-weekly schedule, unless the admixture of paranoid traits is prominent. The latter situation would probably call for fewer sessions per week.
