I like the Friday sessions best, although I don't much care for Paul in them.

I like how we find out about Paul from his wife and his former supervisor (? I'm thinking?). About how who he is as a therapist reflects his own needs and personal weaknesses even if they may be seen as strengths by others. And how he is in a way getting his needs met in therapy even though he may be burnt out right now. I can't remember the episode where Gina talked about it directly. But I remember wondering what my own therapist's style revealed about him as a person. And if that tied in with my own impressions of him.

Right now, as Paul seems to have hit bottom, and is getting a bit better, it's interesting to see how what he says to his clients might be influencing what he's thinking about himself.

I'm reasonably certain that my therapist can't be getting that particular benefit from our sessions.
