I have thought of what my real wish would be (for my psychologist, anyway -- I don't know if I could answer the friend part, because I don't have any friends).

I would like to have a session about HIM, where I could ask him about himself. I would ask him about his family, what he was like as a kid (was he popular? What activities did he do? How did he spend his free time?), what he was like in college (was he in a fraternity? Was he wild, drinking every night and picking up lots of girls, or was he a perfect student who never did anything bad?)?

I would ask about his past relationships: how many girlfriends has he had? How and when did he meet his wife? Why did he decide to marry her? What are his friends like? What does he do in his spare time? What are his favorite movies? His favorite books? Does he feel like he can "be himself" with other people, or does he constantly feel like he is living other people's expectations about how a psychologist is supposed to act? Does he find himself instinctively "analyzing" everybody he knows, or, since he does that all day at work, does he try not to think about it when he's not at work? Do his friends turn to him for advice all the time just because he's a psychologist, and does he like that or hate it? What really annoys him, and what does he do about it? If he could change anything about his life, what would it be?

I would want to know about his career -- when and why did he decide to become a psychologist? Did he ever have doubts about it? How did he decide on the topic for his doctoral thesis? What would he have done if he hadn't gone into psychology? Is he glad he did? What does he like about his job, and what does he dislike about it? Does he plan to stay at the student health center, or does he have a different plan for his career?

It would probably take more than one session, though... I guess my other wish would be for him to keep going until he has told me everything, without looking at the clock. :)
