A remote desktop session *is* a terminal session. Microsoft simply renamed/rebranded terminal services as remote desktop services.

Remote Desktop Session and Terminal Session both seems to be same words used by Microsoft. But by referring to below link you can try to restrict user to use only one session at a time.

Let us know if this worked for you.
