Excerpt

‘Growing up, there was a complete absence of touching, hugging, kissing, support and positive reinforcement. I was very lost in my life. I had little idea how to express myself, but I could deliver to others (particularly adults) expectations very effectively. I needed to be good - and not just good, but the best - at everything. Other parents used to tell my mother that I was the student that every mother wanted. I think that just fuelled her. I guess I felt proud of this and it fuelled me too. I knew how to achieve at school. I was being built for things like that. But anything else - having an opinion, a point of view, knowing my feelings or being myself - I had absolutely no idea. I could never focus on what I liked, what I was naturally good at.'



Professional Reviews

The Longest Journey: finding the true self
I read this book with surprise and delight. It is written in clear elegant prose without the heaviness of professional jargon and psychological concepts. And its great centerpiece are the author’s clients, describing in their own words the experience of counselling and the changes they were empowered to make in their troubled lives. It will be especially helpful to beginning therapists and the general public, particularly those wondering how therapy works and “Is it for me?”
Bob Sharples, Psychologist


The Longest Journey: finding the true self
Amanda Stuart has done a superb job conveying the issues that bring people to therapy. She has highlighted themes that are central to many people who suffer for too long, and presents the stories of real clients in a way that is easy for others to relate to. Amanda is a gifted therapist who has conveyed the therapy process in a way that is inspirational. This is a 'must-read' for anyone who is debating whether or not to make that first phone call.
Judith Siegel, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, New York University.


The Longest Journey: finding the true self
The Longest Journey: finding the true self takes the reader into the intimate space of counselling and psychotherapy. Clients of the author, Amanda Stuart, 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 and those who have embarked on the process 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, Melbourne
