BOOK LAUNCH - A place for Beauty in the Therapeutic Encounter

“Beauty has been a neglected topic in the psychoanalytic field. This book is for psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists who work under the broad banner of psychoanalytic thinking, and for anyone who loves beauty and wants to think more about its place in the mind. “

The author takes Freud’s elliptical comment “psychoanalysis … has scarcely anything to say about beauty” and gives a stage setting to the drama hidden within it.      
BERNARD BURGOYNE, Emeritus Professor of Psychoanalysis, Middlesex University

I was excited to discover this way of experiencing clinical material … This book adds something unique to existing theory and practice.
LINDSAY WELLS, Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy

She concludes her analysis with a strikingly beautiful account of a patient’s emergence into, and use of, beauty.  
FREDERICK STANWOOD, College of Psychoanalysts - UK
