Reviews and Endorsements

The Power of Talking is a truly fascinating, insightful, and powerful read. I felt like I was in the therapy room along with Stelios as I read through each moving and compelling story. This book can teach us so much – not just about therapy but about humanity in general. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest or experience in mental health. Stelios’ passion and knowledge, as well as his warmth and kindness, shine through in this truly wonderful book.

The Power of Talking is one of a kind in that it brilliantly blends information about therapy, with personal experiences, research, and client stories. It is a captivating read with a fantastic blend of entertaining and thought-provoking stories along with history and information about therapy as a healing tool and a journey of exploration. While reading the book, one is gently invited to explore his or her own childhood, struggles, relationships, and successes. Stelios has done a remarkable job sharing so many different sides of psychology, therapy, and himself in an easy to digest and fun to read book.

The paradox of The Power of Talking is that it reveals the power of listening. Stelios shows that by listening to painful aspects of his own story (by talking in the presence of a psychotherapist), he was equipped to embark on this deep process with others. The stories he tells reveal the wonder of the human spirit, the capacity to overcome trauma, the complexity of life events, and the wisdom of the therapist saying the right thing at the right time. Stelios demystifies the therapeutic process and opens it up for others to look into.
