A doorknob confession is a term used by some clinicians/therapists to define the phenomena of the person receiving therapy, or the client, to divulge something incredibly important or critical in the last few minutes of a therapy session. The content of the "confession" is important enough to cause the session to go on longer than originally planed and may include themes such as: a death in the family, suicidal/self harming thoughts or actions, a relationship crisis, drastic change in living situation, ect.
As she stood to leave the therapist's office she gave the doorknob confession that her sister was being physically abused by their step-father.
