5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful passionate and inspiring read., 15 April 2009
This review is from: Who is it that can tell me who I am? (Paperback)
I found this such an inspiring and stimulating read, Jane Haynes captures the very essence of what therapy is and does so very poetically. Haynes takes a brave and bold step in offering the reader a detailed account of her own process through therapy. She writes about her own history with insight and understanding, and truly embodies the meaning of what it is to be a `wounded healer'. She writes beautifully and elegantly about this process without being evangelical about a particular style of therapy. This book is not just another therapy book, but offers the reader inspiration and will have you writing your own journal, going off to find a therapist or going to therapy with new inspiration about what it is to be in therapy.

The author has a unique ability to write about her clients with compassion, tenderness and transparency. She clearly has a high regard for the boundaries of therapy, but balances this with her openness and willingness to be human. Essentially she is a very ordinary yet extraordinary therapist. You get the real sense of a real person who has struggled with life and is prepared to utilise her own struggle in the service of others. This book is a classic and will be the inspiration for many clients and therapists to come.

This book offers a robust alterative to the one size fits all model that is currently been pushed by the NHS. I would not only recommend this book to trainee and practicing psychotherapist but also recommend this to anyone with an interest in psychotherapy and indeed any one who is in receipt of psychotherapy As a practicing psychotherapist with some 15 years experience it has inspired me to read more to work differently and most of all to write about the work I do.
