Dec. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- Psychotherapist Releases Book About Her Experiences With Clients and Therapy

Author and counselor, Amanda Stuart is pleased to announce the promotion of her book, The Longest Journey. This work explores the experience in counseling of a number of the author's ex-clients.

Relationship difficulties, anxiety and depression are common triggers for men and women to seek counseling. Amanda Stuart describes how for many clients it becomes clear in counseling that old wounds — neglect, hurt and anger — are at the heart of the presenting problem, often decades later. She decided to write The Longest Journey to highlight the effect of buried pain, which often links to childhood. The author interviewed a number of ex-clients to understand what had changed in their lives as a result of counseling. Their experiences include sensitive issues — abuse and the suicide of a parent — topics still taboo in our society. Clients were aware of significant change. Relationships were easier and they felt happier.

The book has been well received by professionals, psychologists and counselors, as well as people interested in healing their lives.

Recent Praise:

“The Longest Journey takes the reader into the intimate space of counseling and psychotherapy. The author’s clients describe how their lives were explored, pain experienced, insights gained and the way new and more positive pathways became possible in their lives. Anyone considering therapy will find this book beneficial, as will psychologists, psychotherapists and social workers”. — Dr Coral Brown, Fellow of the Australian Psychological Society, Assistant Director, The Cairnmillar Institute

About the Author:

Since training as a counselor and psychotherapist, Amanda Stuart has worked with individuals, couples and families. The main focus of her work is to develop their sense of self, to improve relationships (particularly with partners and family), and to enable both men and women to change negative patterns in their lives. Formerly a teacher, Amanda has for a long time been interested in exploring the emotional life, and working with clients to understand the way that childhood experience continues to influence, even into adulthood. Amanda is also interested in the exploration of dreams and the way that we can be helped by understanding the unconscious messages contained in them.

The Longest Journey is her first book. She is currently writing a book for teenagers.
