Summary

From Nicole Arzt, licensed marriage and family therapist and founder of Psychotherapy Memes - a global community of more than 80,000 followers - comes a dynamic approach to understanding the therapist career.

Sometimes therapy is awkward. And sometimes it's also painful, messy, and downright confusing. Yet, very few books capture what it's truly like to engage in this work.

In its much-anticipated release, this guide chronicles the strange nuances of working in mental health in the modern world. Sometimes Therapy Is Awkward provides refreshingly candid insight into what it takes to feel more confident and prepared to help others. This guide offers stories, jokes, and action-based solutions for:

  • Coping with excruciating insecurities
  • Improving clinical skills
  • Navigating the workplace
  • Setting healthy and effective boundaries
  • Managing burnout and compassion fatigue
  • Understanding mental health treatment in the modern world

Using introspection and humor, Arzt offers a practical road map for aspiring therapists, new therapists, and any therapist who identifies with feeling afraid or uncomfortable in their work.

It has everything

This book has everything at whatever stage of the counselling process you are in. I am training and I found the start and middle of the book really useful. The end wasn’t helpful now but I can understand how I can come back to it in a few years time.
There is a wonderful mix of heart, common sense and tangible structures.

Slightly patronising

Probably more targeted at the person who has never worked. Some gems of useful insight but unfortunately not for me
