About this deal

I was also thrilled and didn't fully twig until the end that the author of the book is none other than Philippa Perry, Grayson Perry's wonderful wife. In addition to private practice as a Jungian Analyst, he works internationally with parties and leaders as a political consultant. Seeing the nuances of therapy, the missed moments and the overzealous comments made me cringe and chuckle in equal merit. Sunday Times bestselling book The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read was published in 2019 and has been translated into over 40 languages. I think its perhaps meant as a light-hearted teaching tool to those in the fields of counselling/psychotherapy.

Anhand eines Patienten beschreibt Perry über diverse Sitzungen hinweg, wie Psychotherapie funktionieren kann, illustriert von ihrer Tochter Flo Perry. I liked the illustrations, enjoyed the humour and there was a poignant message about allowing yourself to be honest with yourself, to dig deep and take accountability for your growth (the patient). Impulse read on my Kindle read in one sitting after reading a review of How To Survive The Modern World. A wonderful insight into the psychotherapist's couch from the perspective of both the client and the psychotherapist. First off, the "characters" never seem real but just cyphers for the author to put into situations that can put forward psychotherapy instruction.On balance I think when all is said and done Motown has saved more lives and given meaning to more people than psychotherapy.

This little book does give some insight into the therapeutic thing but if it's free and candid expression of feelings which is going to make me feel better about my life, then I'd like to say that I wanted to pour a bucket of icy water over the irritating upper class client and hide the therapist's glasses.Meski ada "studi kasus" yang dibawakan dalam Couch Fiction, tapi bahasanya tetap ramah untuk pembaca pemula. It was easy to sit and read this in one sitting mainly because it’s so accessible and also interesting.

Therapy and recognition of mental health has come a long way, but stigma still exists partly because the mind is like a black box, this book makes progress in a humorous way (for a change) and for that I applaud the author! A graphic novel that explores the months-long encounter between London psychotherapist Pat and her client/patient/co-lead James, a successful barrister with an unhealthy compulsive addiction, Couch Fiction does a superb job of illustrating what exactly happens in a modern psychotherapy session. Organisational and corporate clients include Tesco, Nokia, DelMonte, Ford, Everton FC, City of Tokyo, and the NHS. Having previously read Susie Orbach's 'The Impossibility of sex' years ago when I was working in psychiatry/psychotherapy I was really keen to read this after an interview I read about the author. Perry has put together an insightful snapshot into what it is like to be a therapist and also what it is like to be a patient.

By the end of the book he has been for over 30 sessions and it's funny, tender and remarkably true to life.
