Previously, the book I'd have recommended to anyone wanting to get the feel of what counselling and therapy is about would have been Robert Board's Counselling for Toads. Couch Fiction has now taken the number one spot.
It would also be very reassuring to counselling and psychotherapy students, as the fictional therapist isn't perfect - and the therapy still works. I think it could also be invaluable to a therapist just about to start in independent practice for the graphic insights into the clues a client will glean about you.
And for experienced therapists, 1) the book will probably make you laugh out loud, and 2) there are some useful reminders for where experience can make us less effective.
