In Therapy: The Unfolding Story

by Susie Orbach - £9.99  Profile Books Ltd (Wellcome Collection) (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781781259887 | ISBN 10: 1781259887

In this complete and updated edition of the groundbreaking In Therapy, world-renowned therapist Susie Orbach reveals what really goes on in therapy.
 
Worldwide, increasingly large numbers of people are seeing therapists on a regular basis. In the UK alone, 1.5 million people are in therapy. We go to address past traumas, to break patterns of behaviour, to confront eating disorders or addiction, to talk about relationships, or simply because we want to find out more about what makes us tick.
 
Susie Orbach, the bestselling author of Fat is a Feminist Issue and Bodies, has been a psychotherapist for over forty years. Here, she explores what goes on in the process of therapy - what she thinks, feels and believes about the people who seek her help - through five dramatised case studies. Originally broadcast as a Radio 4 series, here the improvised dialogue is replicated as a playscript, and Orbach offers us the experience of reading along with a session, while revealing what is going on behind each exchange between analyst and client.
 
Insightful and honest about a process often necessarily shrouded in secrecy, In Therapy is an essential read for those curious about, or considering entering, therapy.
