Book Review

The Gift of Therapy by Irvin Yalom

Star rating 4.5 stars

Date of review: January 23, 2023

‘The Gift of Therapy’ is a classic guidebook for new psychotherapists, but I personally would also recommend it to anyone both giving and receiving therapy, or thinking about becoming either a client or a therapist. Yalom covers many topics that might help those who don’t know what to expect from therapy understand it better, and for seasoned therapists, I’d say it’s definitely a book to read more than once. Beautifully written, in classic Yalom style, it is extremely informative and captures the essence of good therapy.
