The Essential Companion to Talking Therapy
Perfect for those currently in therapy, seeking therapy, considering returning to therapy, or supporting a loved one through therapy, this book by Karin Blak is the definitive companion to the therapeutic experience. It will guide you through finding the most appropriate therapy and therapist for your issues, prepare you for the therapeutic experience and provide ideas on how to manage life after therapy. It will give you the best possible chance of getting the most out of your emotional and financial investment.
This is my favourite book that I read this month. It goes through the entire therapeutic process, from beginning to end. It discusses how to select and find out if a therapist is a good fit. It discusses the ethics of therapy, and how therapy is supposed to slowly come to an end, with the tools to take on the challenges to face. This book is the perfect starting place.
Written in plain language, this is a gentle companion and definitive guide to understanding talking therapies
