Worldwide, increasingly large numbers of people are seeing therapists on a regular basis. In the UK alone, 1.5 million people are in therapy. We go to address past traumas, to break patterns of behaviour, to confront eating disorders or addiction, to talk about relationships, or simply because we want to find out more about what makes us tick. Susie Orbach, the bestselling author of Fat is a Feminist Issue and Bodies, has been a psychotherapist for over forty years. Here, she explores what goes on in the process of therapy - what she thinks, feels and believes about the people who seek her help - through five dramatised case studies. Originally broadcast as a Radio 4 series, here the improvised dialogue is replicated as a playscript, and Orbach offers us the experience of reading along with a session, while revealing what is going on behind each exchange between analyst and client. Insightful and honest about a process often necessarily shrouded in secrecy, In Therapy is an essential read for those curious about, or considering entering, therapy. Published in partnership with the Wellcome Collection. Wellcome Collection is a free museum and library that aims to challenge how we think and feel about health. Inspired by the medical objects and curiosities collected by Henry Wellcome, it connects science, medicine, life and art. Wellcome Collection exhibitions, events and books explore a diverse range of subjects, including consciousness, forensic medicine, emotions, sexology, identity and death. Wellcome Collection is part of Wellcome, a global charitable foundation that exists to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas to thrive, funding over 14,000 researchers and projects in more than 70 countries. wellcomecollection.org

MEDIA REVIEWS
Read and re-read the exchanges; it's worth it. * The i *
Praise for the In Therapy radio show: 'The episodes bring a new meaning to the term psychodrama and are a compulsive listen. ... There is no denying ... how gripping her radio programme is.' * The Times *
Susie Orbach's stories from the couch are warm, revealing and irresistible * Guardian *
These 15-minute short stories from the couch proved strangely addictive. ... thought provoking. * Irish News *
Praise for Bodies: Original in her diagnoses and sympathetic in her treatment, she comes across as the intellectual lovechild of Freud and Trisha. How could this not be compulsive reading? * Daily Mail *
Praise for Fat is a Feminist Issue: 'Virtually all feminist debate on body image and beauty imagery owes its existence to Susie Orbach. -- Naomi Wolf, author * The Beauty Myth *
Invaluable * FT *
