Product description

Review

'It's hard not to admire Haynes for confessing her failures - in this admission, as in others in this memoir, she goes where her peers fear to tread.' --Stuart Jeffries, The Spectator

'This book is daring and fastidious. It has important and difficult things to say about big issues like child sex abuse. It also has wonderful things to say about being an individual held, observed, encountered by a therapist.' --Jean Seaton, Director of the Orwell Prize

'... a moving and accessible account. In a field that can often be daunting to consider, let alone enter into, Haynes's memoir provides refreshing and interesting perspectives on theories of transference, as well as the importance of the psychoanalytic relationship for both patient and analyst. It also illuminates the paradox of learning to "let go" in psychotherapy: what is let go of is not lost; it is, rather, replaced by a shared experience of self and other.' --Beth Guilding, The Times Literary Supplement

About the Author

Jane Haynes originally trained as a Jungian psychoanalyst but then `defected' and now refers to herself as a relational psychotherapist. In 2008 her book Who is it that can tell me who I am? (Little, Brown) was shortlisted for the PEN Ackerley Prize for literary autobiography. She lives, and practises, in London.
