Couch Fiction : A Graphic Tale of Psychotherapy, Paperback / softback Book

Couch Fiction : A Graphic Tale of Psychotherapy Paperback / softback


This is not a text book. This compelling case study in the form of a graphic novel vividly explores a year's therapy sessions as a search for understanding and truth.

Told in a witty and thought-provoking manner, each engagingly illustrated scene is accompanied by deft commentary.

Based on a case study of Pat (our sandal-wearing, cat-loving psychotherapist) and her new client, James (an ambitious barrister with a potentially harmful habit he can't stop), this graphic novel follows the anxieties, frustrations, mind-wanderings and break-throughs of each, through a year of therapy sessions together. Beautifully illustrated and accompanied by succinct and illuminating footnotes, this book offers a witty and thought-provoking exploration of the therapeutic journey, considering a range of skills, insights and techniques along the way.

Whether a student, professional, or client, this is an accessible and entertaining read for anyone interested in psychotherapy.
