'I don't like cleaning and hoovering and washing up. I do them because I have to, and I feel that James wants me to be in the house, to be there because his children are there, and the family's there... he likes me there being the mother-hen.'

This is how Morag begins to tell her story to her potential therapist. Six therapists are given the opportunity of assessing Morag: What do they wish to know about her? how do they understand her? how might they work with her? and what outcome can they predict for her as a result of therapy?

In this highly original book - which starts with Morag's own story - the reader has a chance to see six different therapists at work, drawing on the same material from the one real client. The similarities and differences between therapies are highlighted. And at the end the reader is able to enter Morag's experience of the process, and decide with her, which one she might choose in her search for a therapist.

This fascinating volume will appeal to a wide range of students and practitioners involved in counselling and psychotherapy, particularly those interested in comparing different therapeutic approaches.
