Beautifully illustrated and accompanied by succinct and illuminating footnotes, this book offers a witty and thought-provoking exploration of the therapeutic journey, considering a range of skills, insights and techniques along the way. Whether a student, professional, or client, this is an accessible and entertaining read for anyone interested in psychotherapy.
