Unlocked tells the stories of ten different people in therapy in various cultural and geographical contexts – from Saudi Arabia to Venice or New York. Each narrative explores a unique presenting situation and uncovers the complexities of the therapeutic experience. All therapeutic work described in this book happens online. Inspired by real client sessions, the therapist narrator and the clients' stories are fictionalised.

Rather than presenting a barrier, Unlocked demonstrates how a curious and skilled therapist can make the most of the unexpected gifts that the ‘screen’ offers - be it the intrusion of a pet, a parent breaking into the session, or a client taking her therapist for a ride outside. Therapeutic conversations that happen on the screen have a surprising close-up quality; these stories convey the renewed intimacy and intensity of such practice and present new possibilities for the therapeutic process. They will be of interest not only to therapists who are transitioning their practice online but also to those considering therapy or curious about the therapeutic process.

“This is first-rate storytelling; these tales of therapy entirely drew me in and left me wanting more. A most impressive debut collection.” - Irvin D. Yalom, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, Stanford University.
