The Talking Cure by Professor Gillian Straker and Dr Jacqui Winship

This is a fabulous introduction to what psychotherapy is, and how it can help to liberate your mind. Gillian and Jacqui talk us through nine case studies – nine typical stories of problems that people bring to therapy – and then describe how and why therapy can help. There is a freedom to be had in outstanding ourselves and being able to react in the ‘here and now’, unburdened by the past.

The back cover has a great quote from Carl Jung: ‘Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
