In these intriguing accounts, The author, the celebrated author of Fat is a Feminist Issue, presents us with six imaginary clinical cases, including Adam, the serial seducer; Belle, the compulsive liar; and Joanne, the self-mutilator. Through them, the author presents an intriguing look into the hidden world of the consulting room. She demonstrates the way the therapist analyses her own feelings as well of those of the other person, making the therapy relationship a uniquely special place in which discoveries can be made, which enable the patient to change. Bravely, she details failure as well as success. The latter is not denoted by a triumphant denouement but by ensuring the patient is enabled to utilise new ways of thinking after therapy.

Ever wanted an insight into counselling? Or wished you could be a 'fly-on-the-wall' in a psychotherapy session? Couch Fiction allows you to peep through the key-hole of the therapy room door and, more than that, read the minds of the protagonists... Based on a case study of Pat (our sandal-wearing, cat-loving psychotherapist) and her new client, James (an ambitious barrister with a potentially harmful habit he can't stop), this graphic novel follows the anxieties, frustrations, mind-wanderings and break-throughs of each, through a year of therapy sessions together. 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.

It’s time to get past the idea that divorce equals failure. Sure, it may not be what you had in mind when you walked down the aisle, but if it’s the escape hatch into a better life, it should be filled with more promise. It can be celebrated. Ask Me About My Divorce is a spicy, fun, riveting collection of essays by women from all walks of life. With the unifying thread "I got divorced, and the world came into view," the words within will make readers laugh, cry, nod their heads, and feel inspired to do what they need to for themselves. These aren't stories from women tiptoeing around a difficult subject — they're about the ways divorce can be, in fact, a new lease on life.
