My therapist finally saw it a couple of nights when he was out of town. Judging from when I think he left, that would be Thursday and Friday night, although I guess it's possible that he caught a rerun of another night.

He liked Paul, and thought he was a good therapist (apart from what I'd told him about Laura and Alex). But admitted that he is nowhere as intense as Paul. Which is quite true, and probably where I think my therapist is nothing like Paul. I couldn't handle intense. But Paul seems softer with Sophie? And especially last time.

Not that my therapist always radiates paternal/maternal fondness for me or anything. But that particular dynamic of my being defensive, his saying or asking something that responds to what I'm *really* saying, then my acknowledgment of that by saying something to shift the mood towards lighter, that is so spot on.

That one episode was utterly perfect to me, as far as therapy. Of course, therapy isn't utterly perfect therapy every week either. :)

Paul seems so different to me each night. Apart from having that brooding intensity that reminds me more of my father than my therapist. Which night does he most remind you of your therapist?
