Reviews and Endorsements

‘Aileen Webber has written a wonderful book, which explains the power of using the arts in psychotherapy and personal development. It is a treasure trove of practical techniques, inspiring stories, and incisive illustrations. The book convincingly links the arts and the sciences – showing how the human brain is supported, nourished, and developed by the use of symbol and story. I thoroughly recommend this book.’
- Jenny Mackewn, creative catalyst, consultant, and trainer in organisational, community and environmental development

‘This is a must-read book for those interested in the impact of creative and arts-based interventions in individual psychotherapy. Aileen Webber writes in an accessible way with a voice of personal and theoretical integration and in a spirit of curiosity, respect and wonder.’
- Anna Chesner, UKCP registered psychodrama and group analytic psychotherapist and supervisor; co-director of the London Centre for Psychodrama Group andIndividual Psychotherapy

‘The purpose of Aileen Webber’s book is to reflect deeply on important breakthrough moments in arts-based psychotherapy. In this she draws on a wide pool of knowledge in the neurological and physical sciences, as well as her extensive practical experience. As a theoretical physicist, I am extremely impressed with how accurately and appropriately she uses illuminating mechanisms and analogies to understand these pivotal moments. Her many stories are truly touching, and her success impressive.’
- Volker Heine, FRS, theoretical physicist, fellow of Clare College and Emeritus Professor at Cavendish Laboratories (Physics Department), University of Cambridge
