Psychotherapist and best-selling author Susie Orbach sheds light on the often private process of therapy using dramatised case studies. Susie does this in a very accessible way – without any jargon or delving into overly complex theories. This book is a must for anyone who is considering therapy as a career or is simply curious about how it all works.
Using the transcripts from her BBC Radio 4 show, where she improvised sessions with actors who had each been given a brief, Susie intersperses them with her insights to their reactions and explanations of her way of working. This format is a great way to show how therapy can work for different challenges in life, breaks down misconceptions and takes away the mystery and fear around it.
