Are You Considering Therapy? is a guidebook for people who are thinking about going into therapy but aren't quite sure where to start. It will look at the various aspects of choosing a therapist, from sorting through the numerous types of treatment on offer, to deciding whether an individual practitioner is someone you might want to work with. The book will not only explain the differences between a psychiatrist, a psychotherapist and a psychologist, say, but will also give people some sense of the sorts of things that might happen in a session - as well as looking at the many and varied notions of 'cure'. For example, while a behavioural counsellor might make it their mission to rid you of your symptom as quickly as possible, a Lacanian psychoanalyst may consider it their ethical duty to see you through an experience of subjective destitution. (The book would also explain what on earth this means.)

Are You Considering Therapy? will aim to treat all therapies equally, and to allow readers to make their own choices about what might suit them. As well as outlining different treatments, the book will explore the possibilities of going into therapy one-to-one, with a child or partner, or with a group. It will try to be as light-hearted as possible about this serious and often anxiety-provoking process, and to speak straightforwardly about a notoriously unstraightforward field.

An enjoyable read and a trustworthy map to all the new and newest therapies! At last!'
