The many thousands of readers of the best-selling Loves Executioner will welcome this paperback edition of an earlier work by Dr. Irvin Yalom, written with Ginny Elkin, a pseudonymous patient whom he treatedthe first book to share the dual reflections of psychiatrist and patient. Ginny Elkin was a troubled young and talented writer whom the psychiatric world had labeled as schizoid. After trying a variety of therapies, she entered into private treatment with Dr. Irvin Yalom at Stanford University. As part of their work together, they agreed to write separate journals of each of their sessions. Every Day Gets a Little Closer is the product of that arrangement, in which they alternately relate their descriptions and feelings about their therapeutic relationship.

I have never read any of Irvin Yalom's books before but this one was a good place to start. I plan to read more of his books. He looks at counselling in a very open way and even says himself that for every client the counselling 'rules' can be different. It was interesting and very unusual to look at the counselling with Ginny from 2 very different perspectives. I felt frustration with her and felt admiration for him as he just kept plodding along to help her. It was hard work but he persevered.
I really liked this book and felt I learned a lot from a counsellor-to-be point of view.I am glad I purchased it.
