PLEASE NOTE: This event will take place at The Anna Freud Centre, 12 Maresfield Gardens, NW3 5SU. Ticket holders wishing to visit the Museum can do so from 6.30pm.
World-renowned therapist Susie Orbach is joined by Jane Haberlin to discuss what really goes on in the consulting room. This event marks the publication of Susie Orbach's In Therapy: How conversations with psychotherapists really work (November 2016), based on the BBC Radio 4 series.
In Therapy explores what goes on in the process of therapy - what Orbach thinks, feels and believes about the people who seek her help - through five dramatised case studies. Replicating the improvised dialogue of the radio series as a playscript, Orbach offers us the experience of reading along with a session, while revealing what is going on behind each exchange between analyst and client.
Insightful and honest about a process often necessarily shrouded in secrecy, In Therapy is an essential read for those curious about, or considering entering, therapy.
