The Impossibility of Sex: Stories of the Intimate Relationship between Therapist and Client - Susie Orbach


Susie Orbach's classic text explores the rich and rewarding relationship between therapist and client. 

In these 6 imagined case studies, Susie Orbach presents an intriguing look into the hidden world of the consulting room. Aiming to remove the secrecy that surrounds the therapeutic relationship, she provides a powerful insight into the mind of a therapist, showing how strongly the patient can affect the therapist's feelings and how analysing both the therapist and the patient propers the therapy forwards. Bravely, she details failure as well as success. Success is not denoted by a triumphant denouement but by ensuring the patient is enabled to utilise new ways of thinking after therapy.
