SQL Query help

I have the query that supposed to count number of days with sessions. The rules are :

from 14:00 to 17:59 on the weekDays on september till May,

max 2 days per week. And what I counting is the number of sessions per week . Which is incorrect.

For example, If I have the session on Monday from 14:00 to 16:00 and sessions on Thursday from 13:30 till  15:30, and 15:30 till 17:30

I still can do 1 session from 16:00 till 18:00 on Monday

DECLARE @sessionDate DATE 
SET @sessionDate = '2015-09-02'

 
 SELECT WeekStart = convert(varchar(10),dateadd(week, datediff(week, 0, SU.sessionStart), 0),105) ,
 CountID = Count(S.sessionKey) , 
 COUNTDYS = COUNT( DISTINCT DATEPART(weekday, SU.sessionStart) ) FROM session S INNER JOIN sessionUnit SU on SU.sessionKey= S.sessionKey 
 INNER JOIN product P on p.productKey = S.productKey 
 CROSS APPLY ( 
 SELECT item AS SPLITLOCATIONKEY from DelimitedSplit8K(S.locationKeyList, ',') )as ca INNER JOIN location AS L2 ON CA.SplitLocationKey = L2.LocationKey 
 AND (L2.locationKey in (34,1) OR S.locationKey in (34,1)) WHERE SU.instructorKey = 19128 
 AND convert(DATE,su.sessionStart) >= DateAdd("d",45,getDate()) 
 AND convert(DATE,su.sessionStart) < DateAdd("d",91,getDate()) AND datediff(day, 0, su.sessionStart) % 7 not in (5, 6) 
 AND DatePart(month, su.sessionStart) in (9, 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) 
 and P.productKey=2 
 AND DatePart(hour, su.sessionStart) between 14 and 18 
 and @sessionDate between DATEADD(WEEK, DATEDIFF(WEEK, 0, SU.sessionStart), 0) and DATEADD(WEEK, DATEDIFF(WEEK, 0,SU.sessionStart)+1, 0) 
 GROUP BY dateadd(week, datediff(week, 0, SU.sessionStart), 0) 
 HAVING COUNT( DISTINCT DATEPART(weekday, SU.sessionStart) ) >= 2

For your business rules, on what day does a "week" start?

Can you supply a sample of raw data? and then, from that data what is the "expected result"?

The week start on Monday.

Can we just use the hypothetical data

The rules are from 14:00 to 17:59 on weekdays on September till May max 2 days per week.

Can we just use the hypothetical data? Sure, if you can accept a hypothetical answer ...

But if you want a real answer it's up to you to provide the real data (and expected result)

Imagine a person trying to help many folks all who have questions like yours; supplying test data could take up the entire day for that person.

Alternatively imagine a person who has one or two questions a day, and already has tables of relevant data. It does not take them too long to  choose some data for their questions.

You may think I'm asking too much, but you will get faster/better answers if you supply sample data and the expected result, it is a well proven method.
