Reviews and Endorsements

'Orbach powerfully captures the risks, the excitements and the emotional truths of the psychotherapeutic process…intelligent and honest.'
- Anthony Clare, Literary Review

' Orbach's elegant new book is about the feelings that a therapist might have in their day-to-day work with patients…here we have the living, breathing, sweating therapist with a body and with desires.'
- Darian Leader, Observer

'An extraordinary picture of the therapist at work…She writes bravely and what comes shining through is the risk, the balancing act that each party to the therapy is involved in.'
- Penelope Dening, Irish Times
