Sessions: Memoirs of a Psychotherapist by Kathryn Foster, PH.D. is an insightful read with characters that literally jump off the page and draw you into their world of chaos. Reading this book was like being there in the office, in the park, in the home of the main character, Addy, as the lives of her clients were revealed and healed through introspection. Through the character of Addy, the author gives us a peek into her own life as a professional, providing a better understanding of the work involved in helping others delve deep into their own minds to uncover and heal a painful past. After reading Sessions, I have learned a few lessons on improving family relationships and being true to self.
Looking at the title, I thought Sessions: Memoirs of a Psychotherapist was going to be filled with boring clinical jargon, but I was pleasantly surprised. The story begins with the dauntingly handsome protagonist "Michael" and I was hooked right away. By the end of the book, I was cheering for him. I enjoyed the excellent dialogue between her characters from various walks of life; it was like watching a movie in my mind's eye; a definite page turner. Dr. Kathryn Foster delivered a very well written story that will awaken your senses. Full of suspense, drama, hidden desires, obsessions and death - it's all in this book. There were many moments while reading when I laughed out loud, shed a few tears, and felt genuinely attached to each character, especially Charlie, as they worked through their internal turmoil. I also have a newfound respect for the practitioners of psychotherapy. Kudos to the author for a job well done, I'm your newest fan. "Life is made up of small choices."

While I have always know that therapists are specially trained to deal with a broad range of issues on an academic level and are paid professionals, I’ve come to discover that most become therapists because they genuinely have a need to help people. So even though you know that you are talking with someone who gets paid to help you, I take comfort in knowing that most therapist really want to help you feel better. What I found so uniquely different and highly interesting in her book is the personal issues that the Psychotherapist must deal with when treating their patients. I would venture to say that most mental health professionals agree that the profession is inherently hazardous. It takes superhuman strength for most people just to listen to a neighbor moan about his lousy marriage for 15 minutes. Psychologists, of course, enter the profession by choice. Based on the insights that was offered in her book, I look forward to reading Kathryn’s other published work.
